A CANNABIS factory has been uncovered by police in Whitley, Reading.

Police said they had been at the scene for 'the last couple of days' and posted a picture online that showed scores of plants and factory equipment crammed into one room.

The tweet posted by TVP Reading shows the image of the cannabis grow, and says: "Part of our ongoing work protecting our communities against organised drugs supply, #TVPStronghold."

Officers continue to investigate the 'cannabis grow' to find those responsible.

It follows a number other cannabis farm discoveries in Reading by police in recent weeks.
