House for sale

If you’re planning on selling your house, you never know quite what prospective buyers your estate agent might be bringing round for a viewing.

It follows therefore that if you have anything dodgy lying around, it might be a good idea to remove it from sight.

Something that clearly never occurred to a house seller in Colchester, who was no doubt surprised when the prospective buyer of his property turned out to be an off-duty police officer, who unfortunately from his point of view, immediately spotted the £20,000 worth of cannabis plants being cultivated in the garage.

Subsequently officers from the Colchester community team executed a warrant.

It has not been reported whether the policeman involved is still interested in purchasing the property, presumably without the drugs.

It was only last year that a property in Greater Manchester advertised on RIGHTMOVE, showed photos of one room filled with small plant pots covered in plastic.

Obviously the housing market is going to pot!

Drug free, Margaret Mills took us to South Woodham Ferrers, but not so long ago, as today Margaret was concentrating on the mid 1970’s.

Listen again here to what Margaret had to say: –

I look forward to seeing you once more next week,
