Officials in Newport are on the look-out for a mystery gardener after cannabis plants were apparently spotted in council pots.

Around 30 of the illegal plants were photographed in the flower displays close to the city’s castle and high street.

However, by the time council gardeners were told about the distinctive plants they had disappeared.

Steve Reynolds, who owns a shop in the indoor market, said he smelt the plants before he saw them.

“It was about a week ago we spotted them,” he said.

“Walking into work I would see the council there with their vans watering the plants every morning, so the person who planted them also had the advantage of the council tending them.”
