The growers of a marijuana plantation on the rooftop of an apartment in Catalonia have been rumbled after viewers spotted the greenery in aerial footage of Spain’s Vuelta cycling race.

The crop was revealed as a helicopter hovered over the building in Calle Lleida in the Catalan town of Igualada recording live footage of the final kilometre of the eighth stage of the race.

Viewers reported the sighting to the Mossos d’Esquadra, the Catalan police force said in a statement and they then went to the property to investigate.
