Victorian two-bed property with cannabis farm accidentally advertised on Rightmove

A two-bedroom house in Bristol has been advertised online with what is thought to be a cannabis farm in one of the bedrooms. 

Estate agent Besley Hill posted the advert on property listings website Rightmove, with pictures showing an array of drug-making paraphernalia in one room.

House with cannabis 'factory' accidentally advertised onlinePlant pots, ventilation pipes, soil, fans and cabling can clearly be seen in the Rightmove advert which describes the Victorian house as being ‘in need of refurbishment’.
The description for the terraced house on Washington Avenue in Easton says the property has a ‘comprising entrance hall, lounge, open-plan kitchen/dining room, with two bedrooms and first-floor bathroom’.
‘It boasts gas central heating, part double glazing a pleasant rear garden, and no onward chain,’ the listing continues.
The house, which is up for £130,000, was raided by Avon and Somerset Police following a tip-off in July. However, they had not removed the remains of the suspected cannabis kit when the estate agents came to take promotional photographs of the property.
The police said officers took any plants or equipment that was needed as evidence at the time of the raid and anything left behind was ‘damaged beyond repair’.
The estate agent quickly took picture off the website after a house-hunter spotted the cannabis factory and posted it on social media. Rightmove has said it has removed the property from its website.
