POLICE clearing a cannabis farm arrested a man who climbed through the roof from a neighbouring flat — and led officers to an even bigger drug set-up there.

They were packing up after dealing with the first incident at Parkgate when the man appeared, the Rotherham north team tweeted yesterday (Monday).

This led them to check the second property, which had more plants than the first.

A man aged 24 was arrested on suspicion of cannabis production.
