Police officers searched a house in Wadbrough Road, off Ecclesall Road, and found 60 plants being cultivated yesterday.

No arrests have yet been made over the discovery, which came just days after another £60,000 cannabis den was found in a house in Sharrow Vale Road, Sharrow.

Officers involved in that raid also found an illegal immigrant from Albania in the property, who has since been charged.
