A 15-year-old boy has appeared before Teesside magistrates charged with the production of cannabis.

About 400 plants, including seedlings, mature plants and dry cannabis stumps, were found by police searching a house in Thornaby on Saturday.

Cleveland Police said they believe the cannabis was worth more than £150,000.

The boy, who is Vietnamese, was remanded in custody until 13 February. He cannot be named because of his age.
