A CANNABIS farm has been discovered near a scrapyard in an Oxfordshire village.

Police raided an address in Garsington on Tuesday, seizing 60 cannabis plants.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said nobody was at the location and no arrests were made.

The investigation into drugs at the address is ongoing and police said it is not the scrapyard itself that was subject to the warrant.

A force spokesman said: "A Section 23 Misuse of Drugs Act warrant was executed at an address in Garsington at 7.30am on Tuesday .

"A number of mature cannabis plants were located inside the property and seized, but nobody was at the location and no arrests have been made.

"The investigation is ongoing."

It is the latest cannabis farm to be discovered by the force. An ordinary-looking terraced home in Kiddlington was raided on October 15, with police finding 64 cannabis plants.

Earlier this year, more than 700 plants were found at a drugs factory in Witney, leading to several arrests.
