Officers did not say which street the factory was on but just said that it was residential property in Kenilworth.

A cannabis factory discovered in Kenilworth could have put others in danger due to the dodgy wiring inside.

They found about 150 cannabis plants inside along with hydroponic equipment - but no one was found inside the house.

A spokesperson for Warwickshire Police said: "Offender(s) had conducted dangerous alterations to the electrics inside the property, which posed a fire hazard.

"All plants and equipment were seized and have been sent for destruction. Enquiries are ongoing.

"Aside from the illegalities of cannabis, offender(s) posed a serious risk to persons in the community should their electrical 'alterations' have caused a fire. The property has since been made safe."
