The arrest was made after police officers received a tip off from local residents who had raised concerns about the goings on at the property.

Just last month, police discovered a cannabis factory at the former Travis Perkins depot at Bletchley's Simpson Road in Fenny Stratford. That factory was considered to contain the biggest amount of cannabis ever discovered in one go in Milton Keynes, with reports suggesting a million pounds worth of the illegal substance was discovered and destroyed.
