Even after a club had its doors shuttered, the party continued for three men who turned the former rave cave into a full-scale weed-growing operation. 

A massive cannabis farm worth £1 million (NZ$1.9 million) has been uncovered in a UK nightclub.

Officers from the National Crime Agency reportedly stormed the property in Coventry last week, finding around 1,000 plants spread across three floors.

Along with the plants, police also found NZ$300,000 worth of 'sophisticated' growing, planting and irrigation equipment.

Officers also managed to stop two men who were attempting to escape, with three men eventually arrested and charged with producing a class B drug.

According to SWNS, NCA branch commander Adam Warnock said "This is a significant drug seizure which will have a huge impact on the organised crime groups involved, depriving them of commodity and profit.

"It is certainly one of the largest grows ever uncovered by the NCA. Our investigation into this seizure continues."
