Police photos posted on social media following the raid showed cannabis plants growing in a small garden and an indoor area where the plants were hanging upside down to dry.

Neighbours praised the police for the action. Said one resident: "Great job, now perhaps all the dealing being done down by Stansted Mountfitchet train station can also be stopped."

Essex Police urged anyone with information to report it by calling 101 or going online , or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or via its untraceable online form .
