A huge cannabis farm has been discovered in the tiny village of Graveley near St Neots.

Police visited Offord Road on Wednesday 17 April 2024 following reports of a suspicious smell coming from a farm.

Officers seized 1,845 plants with an estimated value of more than £1.5million.

Two men, aged 34 and 35, were found locked inside an outbuilding and are being treated as victims of modern slavery.

An investigation is now underway to establish the circumstances and identify those responsible.

Inspector Colin Norden, Huntingdonshire Neighbourhood Team:

"This highlights the impact that cannabis cultivation has in relation to modern day slavery and the funding of organised crime. 

"They are inextricably linked and neither have any place in our communities.

"Those who take advantage of others for organised criminality can expect to be brought to justice."
