It seems police made the discovery having been called to the property over a report of a possible affray in which one man sustained a black eye. No further action was taken over that incident…
30 year old Jody – who made his television debut in The Cops and who went on to star in Big Meg, Little Meg, When I Was 12m Clocking Off, The Cops, The Street, and as mentioned above, Shameless and EastEnders – and his girlfriend Sarah Melia, are set to appear before Magistrates’ Court next week for a preliminary hearing with regard to the discovery of the plants.
