DC Danielle Brannan of Staffordshire Police’s disruption team south said: “There was a very expensive high-tech grow in the loft. There was also cannabis in jars and tubs found throughout the premises.

“We will always look to shut down drugs operations which blight the lives of the communities we serve and will continue to pro-actively seek to bring the perpetrators to justice."
