No Escape for Some

No Smoking
Police have arrested two men in connection with the discovery of a cannabis factory in Ramsgate on Monday

The two suspects, one aged 19 and the other 49, were arrested on Tuesday afternoon at a house in Cliffsend, Ramsgate, on suspicion of conspiring to manufacture drugs.

Both men are currently at Margate Police Station assisting detectives with their enquiries.

After the raid Det Insp Nick Greenan said: "This is the largest plantation of cannabis ever uncovered in Thanet. It is a well set-up operation, with lights, an irrigation system, nurseries and several rooms with plants in various stages of growth."

Apparently, "The factory had the potential to produce millions of pounds of drugs."

Kent Escapes
On another point of local news, I hadn’t realized that Kent International Airport at Ramsgate was being “re-launched” with a roadshow this weekend, with passenger flights starting on 25th May - see (link on our sidebar and telephone 0845 676 0043). You can download their brochure from the website.

It seems like only yesterday that EUjet launched and let’s hope the new project is more successful than the last.

Oh well, no spliff and roof tiles being blown off every ten minutes. That should bring the property prices down in Ramsgate!

Can't help feeling slight admiration for such good growing facilities here in Thanet. I hope Weed is not missing Bill and Ben the Thanet Pot Men.

Maybe this is where all the Ramsgate millionaires come from.

I tried to book a flight today and this is the message I got from their website:

That doesn't seem promising!
