Police are appealing for information after cannabis was discovered in a property.

An estate agent was due to carry out an inspection on the rented property at Hermitage Court in Woodford Road, Snaresbrook, but several attempts to contact the tenant failed.

He arrived at the property at 2pm on March 4 unannounced and forced entry. He then discovered a small number of dead cannabis plants.

Police are trying to trace the tenant and anyone with information is asked to call 101.
