A BARNSLEY man has admitted growing seven cannabis plants in a spare room - worth £3,100.

Sean Hawksworth, 34, of Top Row, Darton, paid £400 for the plants and the growing equipment, Jayne Ormrod, prosecuting, told Barnsley Magistrates' Court.

Jamie Wake, defending, said the cannabis was for Hawksworth's own use.

Hawksworth was granted unconditional bail and the case was adjourned until November 6 for a pre-sentence report.
