Landmines have been planted in the exclusion zone surrounding the new cannabis farm in Guernsey.
As well as high-powered search lights, razor wire and attack dogs, the owners of the venture thought it prudent to also include anti-personnel devices buried under the ground.
“We can’t take any chances with our new crop,” said the farm’s manager, Tom Le Moignan.
“It was very expensive setting this minefield up, but we’re confident the costs will be more than covered by the products we’ll be selling.
“No one’s ever grown cannabis in Guernsey before but we’re sure it’ll take.”
Nearby residents have raised concerns about the new minefield, with one saying she didn’t think she’d be able to sleep properly at night.
“Those landmines are very loud – one went off while they were laying them down,” said Sally Le Poidevin.
“It shook the whole house and some debris landed on my freesias.”
