An Arlesey man has admitted his involvement in a cannabis factory at Shangri-La Farm on the edge of Stevenage, after huge quantities of class A and B drugs were found in his house.

Leigh Windsor, of Ramerick Gardens, was found with 79.3g of cocaine and 3.75kg of cannabis on December 23 last year, and yesterday pleaded guilty to possession of class A and B drugs with intent to supply.

The 39-year-old also admitted being concerned with cannabis production on the same date in Unit 10 of Shangri-La Farm – a former turkey farm off Stevenage Road in Todds Green that is now an industrial site, right next to a bridge over the A1(M).

Chairman of the bench Ingrid Saggers bailed Windsor to appear for sentence at Cambridge Crown Court on April 6.

In the meantime his bail conditions mean he must not attend the industrial unit in question, and must live and sleep each night at his home address.
