Carlisle man turned house loft into cannabis farm

A man turned the loft of his Carlisle house into "a sophisticated cannabis farm", the city's crown court heard.

David Turnbull, 50, was caught growing 47 plants under lights at his home in Shadygrove Road.

Today he pleaded guilty to cultivating and possessing the class B drug.

He was given an eight-month sentence, suspended for 18 months, and put under a night-time curfew for four months.

No. Who's to say the new code will be followed faithfully?
