The force applied for a warrant to raid the address and a 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis.

A spokesman from the neighbourhood team said: "I guess the moral is threefold. One, go to court, two, don't grow cannabis in your living room or anywhere else and three, answer the door!"

The male was also wanted by magistrates' for more than a month in relation to another offence.
