About 7,000 cannabis plants worth an estimated £6m have been found in Cambridgeshire after police "noticed the smell".

The plants were discovered at about 23:00 BST at an industrial unit in Regal Drive, Soham, by officers on patrol in the area.

A police spokesman said there were "thousands of plants" and described the farm as "huge".

One person has been arrested on suspicion of producing cannabis.

Sgt Dan Bramley, from Cambridgeshire Police, said: "This was good proactive work by the officers who tracked down the cannabis factory after noticing the smell."
