TWO cannabis farms have been found in the same Sunderland street.

Officers received an anonymous tip-off about drugs being loaded into a van outside a house in Sorley Street, Millfield, but by the time police arrived on Sunday morning, the van had left.

Officers raided the house and found 200 cannabis plants in various stages of growth.

Later, officers received another report about suspected drug activity, and unearthed another cannabis farm containing more than 150 plants.

Police are investigating whether the farms are connected.
