200 cannabis plants seized in Chadwell Heath

Police seized more than 200 cannabis plants in a drugs bust yesterday.

Officers arrested a 50-year-old woman after raiding a house in Newhouse Avenue, Marks Gate.

Police said EDF Energy had been called in as the electricity supply were tampered with to bypass a meter.

A total of 202 plants were found on the upper floor of the house during the drugs warrant.

Police officers have launched an investigation and no one has been charged, a Met spokesman said today.
