Have your say

FIREFIGHTERS discovered a cannabis factory when they broke into an empty flat in Sheffield to put out a blaze.

Fire officers broke down the door before extinguishing flames above El Divo barber shop on Mansfield Road, Intake, around 3pm yesterday.

Paul Faulkner, who runs the nearby Simply Portrait studio, said smoke was pouring through the windows. A police spokesman said officers were called to the scene after firefighters found the drugs.
