Pot tunnel makes road collapse

A cannabis factory was discovered after a nearby road collapsed when drug farmers tunnelled under it to tap into mains electricity, it was revealed on Tuesday.

The tunnel, which had a ventilation system, was used to divert the electricity supply to power the 1,000-plant pot factory in a house in the student area of Headingley, Leeds.

Insp Richard Coldwell, of West Yorkshire Police, said: 'We couldn't believe it – the road had actually begun to collapse as a result of the tunnel from the cellar.'

Bloody students!!
