A CANNABIS factory was discovered in a village house after a resident complained of strange smells - and police estimate it has been running for over three months.
The factory was found in Hilltop, Redbourn, on January 13 after a neighbour rang the fire brigade at around 12.15pm to say there was a strange chemical smell coming from the first floor.
But after investigating, the firemen called the police who found a cannabis factory containing a large number of plants at varying stages of growth in the house.
It is understood that police chased a woman before stopping her in Cumberland Drive.
