A cannabis factory with almost 800 plants has been discovered inside an iconic Merthyr Tydfil chapel.
Unbeknown to nearby residents, the building on Newcastle Street - a prominent landmark in the town since it was built in 1856 - was housing 769 cannabis plants.
Officers only discovered the huge operation after conducting a spot check on someone acting suspiciously.
From the information obtained they discovered the unbelievable haul brazenly being grown in the town centre.
