Police discovered a large-scale cannabis farm in the cellar of a pub.

The Joker, in Cameron Road, Seven Kings, now faces an uncertain future after 250 plants were found by officers while executing a drugs warrant.

The pub’s licence has since been revoked by Redbridge Council.

Officers made the discovery on Wednesday morning when a cellar door was found hidden behind a book case in the cellar.

At 8.40am officers raided the property and found, in the secret room, an elaborate lighting and irrigation system.

A 58-year-old man was arrested and has now been bailed until December 16.

A charge of supply and production of the class B drug can lead to to 14 years in prison, an unlimited fine or both.
