Some plants need plenty of sunlight.
And some need to be kept out of the spotlight.
Dopey cannabis-growers were caught by police after putting a huge plant on show in a front window of their house on a main road.
Leicestershire Police caught the budding gardeners after spotting the sizeable plant while patrolling the road outside.
South Leics Police tweeted yesterday (17/8): “Tip of the day – don’t grow cannabis in a window when you live on a main road & expect us not to notice.
“PCs Lewis and Ian.”
Police have not yet said whether the cannabis growers were arrested or charged, or whereabouts in Leicestershire it was found.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
