Police have removed a number of cannabis plants from a shop in Nailsea.

Officers attended the property in High Street yesterday (Wednesday) after being contacted by the landlord who raised concerns and have identified a man for questioning.

A total of 10 plants were found in a storage area of the store while the electricity also appeared to have been tampered with.

Neighbourhood PC Martin Faithfull said: “Growing cannabis, no matter how few plants, is an offence.

“Often we find that the electricity supply has been tampered with in order to set up the growing equipment.

“This practice has already led to a number of fires in the Avon and Somerset police area.

“I would urge anyone who suspects that a property is being used to grow cannabis to contact us through our website or by calling 101.”
