Two people have been arrested after police raided a suspected cannabis factory in West Sussex.

They were later released on bail until 9 February pending police inquiries.

Officers also seized vehicles including a car, a horse box and four motorcycles, as well as laptops, £1,800 in cash, and correspondence.
