It comes just months after police uncovered a huge cannabis factory suspected to be run by an organised crime gang in Digbeth.

A total of 3,112 plants were recovered with a value of around £3-million at the house in Bradford Street in January.

Three Vietnamese men who are believed to be in the country illegally were arrested at the premises and later charged with cannabis cultivation.
