An Albanian arrested in a house where cannabis was cultivated has been sentenced to prison by a court in Cardiff.

Bledi Memaci, 26, was arrested near the flat in Adam Street, Abertillery, as Gwent Police also discovered the cannabis farm.

According to the authorities, he had adapted an abandoned four-room apartment for the cultivation of cannabis, installing there all the necessary equipment for growing the narcotic plant.

He said he had struggled to find work in construction and had been forced to grow cannabis for a gang.

The court sentenced him to 12 months in prison and deportation after serving his sentence.
