Weed 'forest' found in Kingston upon Thames

Kate Lloyd

Question: what's more exciting than a lush green countryside forest? Answer: an inner-city weed forest, obvs. Police in Kingston upon Thames found 150 marijuana plants growing across an area the size of a football pitch.

The plants, which look like Christmas trees, had grown into a forest that was 1.5 metres tall. PC Sarah Henderson said: 'Whoever set this up used a really remote spot. The only way to get there was a 20-minute walk through wasteland. But all their time, trouble and gardening skills will go unrewarded, as the whole lot will now be destroyed by police.'
