A large cannabis factory has been found in a former east London police station.

Officers raided the former Isle of Dogs precinct on Manchester Road after it was alerted the premises were a “potential cannabis factory”.

This isn’t the first time a cannabis factory has cropped up in an unusual spot.

Isle of Dogs councillor Peter Golds told the Evening Standard: “Two years ago we found a cannabis factory in a school in the borough and now this.”

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “On Sunday July 24 officers from Central East Basic Command Unit were alerted to a potential cannabis factory at the former Isle of Dogs police station on Manchester Road, E14,”

“On arrival a large cannabis factory was found which is currently a crime scene with officers at the location. There has been no arrest and the investigation is ongoing,”

“The Isle of Dogs police station was sold to a private company on February 25 2022 and is no longer Metropolitan Police Service property.”

Police are still working at the site and no arrests have been made.
