Two men have been arrested after a police raid uncovered a £2.2m cannabis farm in a former bingo hall.

The plants were found at Empire Bingo in Mexborough, Doncaster on Tuesday morning.

The men, aged 29 and 38, were arrested on suspicion of the production of Class B drugs, with 2,188 plants seized.

Cannabis farms like the one raided generate “essential” income for gangs who “cause misery for many”, South Yorkshire Police said.

Weeks of investigation work by the force’s neighbourhood policing team led to a drugs warrant being carried out at the building on Swinton Road, police added.
