Inspector for the New Forest West District Michael Minnock said: “We know that a lot people will think, it’s just a bit of cannabis, but we want to stress this isn't always the case - it could be linked to serious criminality.

"That’s why we are really keen to hear from people who suspect there is cannabis cultivation or drug related activity going on their neighbourhood."

Police say every call made is logged and helps us officers "build up an intelligence picture" about what might be happening in the community.
