Cannabis: The plant was discovered in the garden of an elderly couple | Bedford Police

An elderly couple found themselves the target of a police drug raid, after accidentally growing a huge cannabis bush from buying the shrub at a local car boot sale.

The couple had taken the pot plant home and given it pride of place in their garden. The shrub bloomed into an enormous plant, along the wooden fence.

Bedfordshire Police seized the plant on Friday, posting a photograph of it on Twitter, claiming it was the "biggest plant we have ever seen".
