Police discovered a cannabis farm worth £150,000 after responding to a 999 call.

Officers attended a semi-detached house in Chesterfield Road North, Pleasley, following a report of suspicious activity taking place at the property.

Upon entering the house, the response officers could see cannabis plants in the kitchen sticking out of bin bags.

Two men inside the house were arrested and handcuffed while a full search of the property was carried out.

Officers found 152 cannabis plants in total as well as a third person upstairs, who was also arrested.
