Havering officers carried out the raid on the house in Straight Road, Harold Hill, at around 7.40am on Tuesday, where they found 97 plants in the process of being dried out, young plants being grown, as well as paraphanalia required to cultivate the drug.

Money and several mobile phones were also seized by detectives.

A 51-year-old man was arrested at the scene and has been bailed to return to an east London police station at the end of May.
