A SMALL cannabis factory has been dismantled after members of the community contacted police.

Officers visited a house in Brendon Road, Worthing, on Tuesday and discovered a bedroom was being used for the growing of cannabis plants under a lighting system.

Six plants and 38g (1.3oz) of cannabis were recovered at the property, along with hydroponics equipment.

A 20-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman, both from Worthing, were arrested on suspicion of the production of cannabis. They were later released without charge.
