A CANNABIS factory has been raided in a case of suspected "modern-day slavery".

Police swooped on a "cannabis factory" in a crackdown on drugs.

Officers acted on information from the community during the raid in Gosport over the weekend.

Police believe the growing operation may be a case of modern-day slavery.

A post on the Gosport Police Facebook page said: "It has been a busy weekend for the Gosport East Neighbourhood team but what a result.

"The team acted on information provided by the community and located and dismantled a Cannabis Factory.

"Not only have we taken these drugs from streets we have also safeguarded persons we believe may be subject to modern-day slavery."
