Police have seized a giant marijuana plant from an elderly couple who unwittingly bought it at a car boot sale.

The couple were shocked to find that their carefully tended shrub was in fact a gigantic cannabis plant.

Police officers in Bedford said it was the biggest plant they had ever seen, reports the Daily Mail.

Bedfordshire Police took to Twitter to comment on their find and post a photo of the huge bush growing in the suburban garden.

The tweet from Bedford Borough's local policing team read: "Seized today. Elderly couple bought shrub at car boot sale, tended carefully - biggest cannabis plant we had seen!"
