In early September authorities found a marijuana grow about the size of a football field in southwest London, according to BBC News.

An anonymous tip led police to the site of over 150 plants. No arrests have yet been made, but the case is still under investigation.

“Whoever set this up used a really remote spot – the only way to get there was a 20-minute walk through wasteland,” said Sarah Henderson, from professional corporations. “But all their time, trouble and gardening skills will go unrewarded, as the whole lot will now be destroyed by police.”
