A cannabis cultivation has been found at a multi-storey building in Dundee after reports of smoke.
Around 40 plants were found on Monday morning after Tayside Fire and Rescue responded to a report of smoke coming from a flat in Lansdowne Square.
Tayside Police said on Wednesday that the scene had been secured and an investigation was being carried out.
A spokesman asked the public to be aware of signs of drug farms.
He said: "Tell-tale signs can be permanently covered windows, soil being taken into the house and strong odours coming from the property. Another indication is people coming and going from the address at all hours of the day and night, very often only staying at the house or flat for a short time.
"Cannabis cultivations, or drugs factories as they are also known, are an inherent danger and present a very real fire risk as electrical supplies are often interfered with and run alongside makeshift irrigation systems."
Anyone with any suspicions surrounding people or property that might be involved in illegal drugs activities should contact Tayside Police immediately on 0300 111 2222 or speak to any officer.
