AN Ash­ford busi­ness­woman was hor­ri­fied to dis­cover that her late fa­ther’s home had been used as a cannabis fac­tory for months.

The re­mains of 150 cannabis plants were found at a three-storey semi-de­tached cot­tage in Golden Square, off Sus­sex Road, New Rom­ney,

Yvette Ta­mara was rent­ing out the prop­erty that had be­longed to her late fa­ther.

Ten­ants had been liv­ing there three months. When rent had not gone into her ac­count one month so she put a note through the door.

When she got no re­ply her son went to the house and dis­cov­ered the de­serted home and the re­mains of cannabis crops strewn all over the house.

Ms Ta­mara, 49, a mother-of-two, who runs a hair salon in Ash­ford and works as a psy­chic, said: “There was plas­tic sheet­ing all over the floor, sil­ver pa­per on the walls, a hole in the roof, all the elec­tric wires hang­ing out of the walls, it was an ab­so­lute mess.

“I called the po­lice who said the crop could have made up to £100,000.”

“There’s thou­sands of pounds worth of dam­age and I’m left to pick up the pieces.”

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
