Cannabis farm found near the Bank of England

More than 820 cannabis plants were found in the heart of London’s Square Mile near the Bank of England.

The drugs farm was set up in the basement of a building in Throgmorton Street.

It’s thought the alleged growers were taking advantage of the City being quiet during lockdown.

Police raided the farm after people reported a strong smell of the Class B drug.

City of London officers found lighting and a ventilation system.

The equipment was dismantled, and 826 plants destroyed.

Two people were arrested.

Acting Detective Inspector Andy Spooner said:

“This is the first cannabis factory in the City, no doubt being set up in response to fewer people being out and about during the pandemic who might have noticed any unusual activity.

“However, this demonstrates that City of London Police continues to actively police the Square Mile, bearing down on any crime committed here.”
