Officers from Sheffield North East neighbourhood policing team stumbled upon “the products of someone's, ahem, ‘home gardening’” on Saturday (30 May) after they attended a disturbance.

A spokesperson warned: “If you are going to row with your neighbours, please make sure you don't have multiple cannabis plants in your house. We're likely to find them.”

Earlier that day police also arrested a man in Parson Cross on suspicion of Grievous Bodily Harm and another man on suspicion of threats to kill in the Southey area. A woman was also detained on suspicion of assault in Firth Park.
