HEAT lamps seized by police in raids on local cannabis farms will be put to good use by third tier English soccer club Notts County to help their own – legal – grass grow at the Meadow Lane stadium.

A spokesman for County said police donated the confiscated equipment that would previously have been crushed.

“They will help the grass grow down the near side of the pitch where the stand does not let the light in during the winter,” the spokesman said, adding that the saving for the club would amount to tens of thousands of pounds.
