Police raided a series of farms and production plants across Spain in an operation called Gardens. Nine men and 11 women, aged between 20 and 59, were arrested.

In a statement, Spain’s Civil Guard said it had “seized the largest cache of packaged marijuana found so far”.

“It was equivalent to approximately 1.1 million plants,” it added.
