checks on a water leak at a house in Mexborough led to the discovery of a cannabis factory.

Sixteen cannabis plants were discovered at a property on Thirlmere Court after staff from St Leger Homes attended the property to investigate the leak.

Police were informed and the plants, with an estimated value of £3,800, were recovered. Jamie Westwood, aged 36, has admitted drugs offences and was bailed by magistrates to be sentenced by Doncaster Crown Court.
