Durham PCC Ron Hogg: We will work with cannabis users

Durham's police and crime commissioner Ron Hogg is offering cannabis users the chance to avoid prosecution in a bid to stop a "cycle of reoffending".

Mr Hogg wants to see users of the class B drug in County Durham and Darlington entered onto a course to deal with their habit rather than being arrested.

The Checkpoint programme aims to stop reoffending by diverting addicts away from their habit.
