A MAN has been told he faces jail for tending a cannabis crop.
Barrie Dudding admitted being concerned in the supply of the Class B drug.

He denied a second charge of abstracting electricity without authority.

Judge Paul Darlow adjourned sentence for a report but told Dudding he faced jail.
David Gittins, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said he accepted he was the caretaker for the drugs.
He offered no evidence on the electricity matter and the judge recorded a not guilty verdict.
Nigel Hall, for Dudding, said he wanted to get his affairs in order before sentence.
Dudding, of no fixed address, was released on bail until December 14 pending a report from a probation officer.
He was arrested after cannabis was found in Chedworth Street, Greenbank, on February 20.
