Couldn't make this one up

A pilot whose light aircraft crash-landed in a garden in Kent has been arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis. Sid Clark, 47, of Tonbridge Road, Barming, near Maidstone, has been bailed pending further inquiries. The plane crashed in Lyminge on Saturday, carrying a prisoner on day release from jail.

Whoops!So the story so far. Light aircraft crashes in a garden. Pilot is interviewed on TV and admits that he made a mistake in the fog and mistook some trees for a landing strip. He'd hired the plane and the owner is not a happy bunny. Oh and his passenger turns out to be a prisoner on day release from HMP Blantyre House - they were taking a day-trip across the channel........

And now the police have popped round to the pilot's house and stumbled across a few hundred plants.

I suppose the moral is that if you are growing your own and fancy a jolly to France with a serving prisoner and the weather is a bit off it's probably best to make sure you are absolutely straight - know what I mean?
