Police are now investigating the source of a cannabis plantation in Lee Valley Park on Tuesday, October 10.
Chief Inspector Ian Butler said: “A number of officers spotted the plants while conducting routine patrols in the park and when it became clear that the crop had been tended to, an investigation was launched.
“The plants have now been seized and destroyed, and officers are working to establish the person or persons responsible for cultivating it. I am appealing for information and any witnesses.
“Thanks to the tenacity of those officers, these plants are no longer destined for illegal use. We have prevented further cannabis from being circulated on the streets.”
