A 16-year-old, from Chapeltown, is also charged with the same offence and possession of a section one ammunition.

All four have been remanded in custody until Tuesday when they will appear before Leeds Crown Court.

A 41-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and production of cannabis on Friday night. He remains in police custody.

A 15-year-old boy, from Harehills, has been released without charge.
