A Harry Potter actor admitted growing cannabis today.

Jamie Waylett, 19, who plays Vincent Crabbe in the popular films, pleaded guilty to growing 10 plants in tents at his mother's home.

The teenager and his friend John Innis, 20, were arrested when Waylett took a photograph of police as the pair drove past officers.

Innis's black Audi was then searched and police discovered a knife and eight bags of cannabis.

They then visited Waylett's mother's house in Kilburn, north west London and found 10 cannabis plants.

They also found another three bags of cannabis in Innis's possession.

Appearing at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court, Waylett, of Messina Avenue, Kilburn, admitted production of cannabis.

Innis admitted possession of a knife and having 11 bags of cannabis.

Adjourning the hearing until 31July, chief magistrate Timothy Workman said: "Clearly the possession of cannabis is a serious matter and indeed the possession of knives is serious as well.

"At the moment I'm not giving you any promises as to how the court will deal with this case."
