REPORTS of flooding from an upstairs flat led police to discover an alleged cannabis farm in Clydebank.

Police and council officials responded to a call about the water damage at an address in Kilbowie Court at around 6.20pm on Wednesday.

After entering the property to investigate the reported water problem, a drugs search warrant was obtained, and police say 13 cannabis plants were discovered.

According to police, the householder, a 50-year-old man, arrived during the search. He was interviewed and charged and is now the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal.
