Cannabis with an estimated street value of £1m has been discovered at an isolated farm in East Sussex.
Officers from Sussex Police carried out a drugs warrant at Warrenorth Farm, on the A275 East Grinstead Road, North Chailey, on Wednesday.
In a specially adapted outbuilding they found 1,500 cannabis plants in different stages of growth.
Two men and two women were arrested on suspicion of being involved in cannabis cultivation and are being questioned.
Sussex Police said it was one of the biggest sites it had uncovered for some time.
Det Insp Gavin Patch said: "Often we will have 150 plants or 200 plants but 1,500 is more than we would expect to find."
