Police raided a house in Castle Road, Dalmellington, Ayrshire, and discovered crops estimated to be worth £100,000.

A neighbouring family had noticed electricity bills skyrocketing and alerted Scottish Power.

A cable was also found connecting one house to another, and a police raid was carried out.

Two bedrooms were found to be used for cultivating the drug.

A police spokesman said: "A number of plants were discovered and enquiries are ongoing."
