More than £1 million was stripped from criminals in Derbyshire during the last year under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Latest figures show that between April 1, 2013 and the end of March 2014 almost £20,000 per week in cash and other assets were removed from offenders.

The largest single amount was seized from Thi Cuc Le and her husband Hong Hai Lam, each jailed for five years in November 2012 and ordered to pay back £452,193 in September 2013 for running cannabis factories in four counties. They were arrested in 2011 after police discovered a cannabis factory containing more than 400 plants at a house in Victoria Street, South Normanton.
