Officers swooped on an industrial unit in Balmoral Street, Partick and discovered around 1100 cannabis plants with an estimated street value of £660,000.

Drugs were also recovered from a car on the M74, which was travelling northbound at Larkhall. The drugs, believed to be Amphetamine Sulphate, have an estimated street value of £1m.

A 26-year-old man was arrested in connection with the M74 recovery and is expected to appear at Hamilton Sheriff Court on Monday.
