“Hyde Martlet will now seek re-possession of the property through the legal system where they will re let it back to a more deserving family.”
A spokesman for Sussex Police added: “Police executed a Section 23 Misuse of Drugs Act warrant at a property in Portal Close, West Ashling at around 10.25am on Wednesday (October 28).
