A rapid entry task force used a chainsaw during the dramatic swoop at the property in Salters Lane, just after 7.30am.

Safer Neighbourhood Team officers were joined by colleagues from the Local Policing Priority Team and West Mercia Police patrol.

Officers are still at the scene.

PC Stone, who led the operation after acting on intelligence said: “Drugs can blight local communities and we need to get them off the streets when we can.

“We hope this sends a clear message out to others that drug cultivation in the borough won’t be tolerated.

“You said, we did.”

Anyone with any information of drug activity in their area should call their local police Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.
