Rotherham North Neighbourhood Police said the arrest was made at a flat near Parkgate on Monday evening.

They tweeted: "Just about packed up ready to go at a cannabis set-up. Then a suspect climbs through the roof space from a neighbouring property. He is arrested. And then we find a second cannabis set-up in the flat he came from with even more plants than the first one."
