Five men were arrested when police discovered a cannabis factory during a raid on a house in Northamptonshire.

The officers, responding to a tip-off, raided the terraced house in Dorking Walk, Corby and found two rooms full of plants which were removed.

The men have been taken into custody and are being questioned about the drugs, police said.
