A property listing of a house in the North East has caused shock after the images used online showed its previous use as a cannabis farm.

The home, which is on Houghton Road in Hetton Le Hole, has appeared online on Rightmove for a cheap £30,000 - but it's not the price that people who have looked at the listing have been shocked by.

Despite showing the frontage of the house, which appears to not have a door, the listing gets even more bizarre after the accompanying images show it in its former use as a cannabis farm.

Here's the images of the property:

In the images, pots that used to have cannabis plants in them and wiring and lofts that used to have drugs in them are shown in full throughout the listing.

The bold property entry, which is currently on the market, is fully upfront about the fact of its previous use, with the listing mentioning it in the first few paragraphs online.

Featuring on a terraced street, the property features two bedrooms and one bathroom, the property will go for online auction on March 6 this year.
