A CANNABIS factory has been discovered in a village house after a resident complained of strange smells.
Police estimate that the factory in Hilltop, Redbourn, has been running for over three months.
It was only discovered after a neighbour rang the fire brigade to say there was a strange chemical smell coming from the first floor.
After investigating, firemen called 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.
A 41-year-old woman from London was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and was bailed to Monday of this week. But she failed to answer her bail.
