SOMETHING that really should not be there has been discovered in a Herefordshire chicken coop.

Police officers from Leominster, trading standards officers, and detection dogs from B.W.Y Canine swarmed on a property in Herefordshire this week in the hunt for illegal goods.

And they would make a discovery in a very surprising place, with an electromagnetically operated hidden fridge found concealed in a concrete floor under the property's chicken coop.

Inside the compartment, the team found a stash of illegal tobacco, a Herefordshire Trading Standards team spokesperson said.

Pictures shared by the team show a range of different brands were discovered in the compartment, including both premade cigarettes and rolling tobacco.
