A MAN grew up to £25,000 worth of cannabis in his garden to get out of debt. Carl Burrows, 57, of Oakwood Road, Rayleigh , avoided a jail term when he appeared at Basildon Crown Court yesterday and avoided a jail term.

He had previously admitted to producing 1,489 grams of cannabis and possessing 158 grams with the intent to supply. He also admitted to abstracting electricity to the value of £772 so he could power the cultivation in his shed without paying for it.
