Witham: Police shut down cannabis factory

POLICE have shut down a cannabis factory after discovering more than 100 plants.

Officers searched a property on Swan Vale Industrial Estate in Witham today and found 118 cannabis plants being grown.

No one has been arrested but Essex Police are continuing their inquiries.
