Police in Nottinghamshire have uncovered a cannabis factory housing more than 3,000 plants.
Officers found the crop, thought to have a street value of more than £1.5m, during a search of a building on Watnall Road in Hucknall on Tuesday.
Insp Nick Butler said the factory was a "sophisticated set-up" and that two men had been arrested.
Investigators are expected to remain at the scene for several days while the factory is dismantled.
