Four Vietnamese men locked underground slept on mattresses on the floor of the sick bay and collected urine in plastic bottles
Room 104 of the nuclear bunker in Wiltshire was originally designated as a sick bay for senior military personnel, who would have been dispatched to the 40-room underground shelter in the event of nuclear war. When police raided the site in February they found it had been turned into living quarters for four Vietnamese men who were locked inside the building, responsible for watering, pruning and feeding 4,600 cannabis plants.
When the Guardian visited two days later, police were still counting and photographing the plants before destroying them. The smell was overwhelming.
