Police in Purbeck are inviting a green-fingered resident to come and have "a chat" with them.

The dry invitation follows the discovery of what the police call "interesting plants" - which appear to be cannabis plants - growing in the open.

South West Farmer:

The tall, well-maintained plants were found on Thursday, October 8.

Purbeck Police issued their invitation on its Facebook page: "Purbeck NPT came across some very interesting plants this morning.

"We called our colleagues to help us take them down as they were pretty tall (as you can see them next to Mike, our 6'5" PCSO).

"These plants were very well looked after and we are sure their owners will be missing them, so if they would like to speak with us, they are welcome to come to Wareham Police Station and we can have a chat."
