Private landlords in the UK have been urged to make the relevant tenant reference checks prior to agreeing tenancy agreements.

Detective Constable John Cairns, investigations officer at Thames Valley Police, told Get Bracknell that conducting this research on tenants can be beneficial and regularly checking up on their properties is advised.

This landlord advice followed news that a Vietnamese man of no fixed abode was jailed for two years after he was found guilty of running cannabis factories in rented properties all over the Bracknell area.

Kien Ngoc Nguyen, who is 19 years old, was arrested by police earlier this year when officers found 190 mature cannabis plants and 260 seedlings in a Great Hollands property.

The National Landlords Association has frequently warned private landlords about the problems caused by people growing drugs in their homes, but cases still keep cropping up across the UK.

Detective Constable Cairns added: "We would encourage residents to report any suspicious activity such as covered windows and unusual comings and goings from a house in their street."
