A massive cannabis factory has been uncovered inside a former nightclub in Coventry city centre.
Officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) raided the venue in Trinity Street on Thursday (October 15), smashing through reinforced doors to gain access into the former club.
Inside, some 1,000 cannabis plants were discovered, spread out over three floors.
According to the NCA, the value of the grow is an estimated £1 million and has been described as “one of the largest grows ever uncovered by the NCA”.
What’s more, around £150,000 worth of equipment relating to the illicit operation was also seized.

In total, three men were arrested, and all have subsequently been charged with production of a class B drug.
