Two cannabis factories found in Derby

Two cannabis factories have been discovered by police in Derby.

They found more than 500 suspected cannabis plants and growing equipment at a house in Osmaston Park Road and a man was arrested trying to flee.

The 31-year-old man, due to appear before magistrates later, is charged with production of a class B drug.

A second factory was uncovered at a disused clothing shop in Rutland Street in Pear Tree. It contained more than 200 plants.
