A VIETNAMESE man who is accused of growing a cannabis farm described as the biggest police have seen in South Tyneside, will have his case heard at crown court.

Duong Van Nguyen, who cannot speak English, had his first formal court hearing yesterday in connection with a cannabis farm which was found at a flat in Sunderland Road, South Shields, last Thursday.

Yesterday was the 19-year-old’s fourth time at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court since then, but no progress was made on the other occasions because there were no interpreters available at court.
