Firefighters discovered 50 cannabis plants in a house fire.

Three crews from Burnham and Tillingham were called to the detached property in Mountview Crescent, St Lawrence, just before 4.45am on Tuesday.

The plants were found in the garage and there was no-one at the house at the time.

Electricity supplies to the house and 28 other properties had to be switched off while firefighters tackled the blaze.
