The warrant was in relation to illegal dog breeding at the location, however officers actually uncovered something slightly different.

A spokesman said: “On searching the site, it became clear that there was something else going on.

“Instead of finding puppies, dome of the kennels actually contained boxes of counterfeit cigarettes and tobacco, well where else would you keep them, a horsebox maybe?
