Two illegal immigrants have been jailed after cops raided a giant £2 million cannabis farm just 270 yards from a police station.

Albanians Emiljan Gjura, 31, and Ermir Reshiti  35, were locked up for two years for their parts in a ‘sophisticated operation’ discovered in the seaside resort town of Southend-on-Sea, Essex.

More than 3,000 plants were seized by Essex Police after they discovered the giant grow-op sprawled across five industrial units.

They both claim to have come to the UK to make money to help their families – but neither of the men co-operated with Essex Police and refused to reveal who recruited them.

They were sentenced yesterday at Basildon Crown Court after previously pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of cannabis.
