Cannabis farm found at abandoned Gloucester nightclub KCs

A 300-plant cannabis farm has been discovered in one of Gloucester's former favourite nightspots.

Police officers from Gloucestershire's serious organised crime operations team descended on the former KCs nightclub on Quay street on Wednesday afternoon.

KCs or the 'King of Clubs' was according to the facebook page set up in its honour, "the best nightclub in Gloucestershire in the 80s and 90s."

And it seems that some of the officers involved in the raid shared those memories, according to the tweet they put out last night.

The team shared some happy KCs memories tonight whilst taking apart a 300 plant cannabis factory in the former Gloucester night club," it read.

"Sticky carpets were the least of their worries!"

KCs has been abandoned for many years and is set to be demolished with plans for a new development on the site.

The plans, which would see 115 student flats being built on the site, were approved by the city council.
