Arrest over huge cannabis plant
A SUSPECTED cannabis grower was arrested for allowing an illegal plant to grow to a record-breaking height in his garden.
The plant, which topped a 6ft fence, was part of a drugs haul seized by Avon and Somerset police from two neighbouring houses on the Bournville estate in Weston-super-Mare yesterday morning.
Believed to be the biggest single plant ever found by the force, it was growing in a back garden on Brue Close next to a plant that had already been cropped. Inside the house, cannabis buds were drying next to radiators and on a clothes airer. A 55-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating a class B drug.
Next door, a partially-cultivated plant was found in the garden with the buds in jars inside the house. Weapons including a baseball bat, sets of scales and cash were also seized. A 49-year-old man was arrested.

Neighbourhood beat manager PC Andy Vallender said: "While we obviously had information to prompt us going to the houses, we did not expect to find anything like the size of plants and quantity of cannabis."
