Police showed they have a sense of humour when they discovered cannabis plants growing in woodland.

Officers dug up the drugs before leaving a light-hearted note for the person responsible for them, saying: “Sorry we missed each other”.

Thames Valley Police had received a tip-off about what it described as a “cannabis plantation” in woods near Oxford.

Officers discovered multiple cannabis plants growing in a secluded area on Friday evening and seized the evidence.

But they also left behind a hand-written note on a form usually used by officers to put through letterboxes when people are not at home during a routine inquiry.

It read: “Ooops! Sorry we missed each other but feel free to call me on 101 so we can discuss a deal. Lots of love, TVP xx.”

The note was then secured to the ground with a spike and left for the cannabis owner to discover – not however, before taking a mobile phone photo of the message.
