Cannabis robbers 'raiding wrong houses'

It used to be that burglars were after your jewellery or your laptops or your fancy tellies, but in some English cities there's a new target - cannabis.

Police in Nottingham say burglars are raiding houses where cannabis is being grown. There's a decent profit in selling it. But in many cases they're raiding the wrong houses, upsetting a lot of people and coming away with nothing. Sima Kotecha speaks to one man whose house was wrongly targeted.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Friday 7 November.
