Police investigations are continuing and witnesses are being sought after a cannabis factory was found at a house in a north Suffolk village.

Shocked villagers in the tiny hamlet of Ashby, near Somerleyton, witnessed a large police presence over the weekend and the force helicopter was involved as the property was raided – with about 400 cannabis plants being recovered.

Officers were initially contacted at 2pm last Friday following reports of “suspicious activity” inside a house in the village.

The spokesman said: “Following a series of inquiries, officers forced their way into the property at 4pm on Saturday. A cannabis factory with approximately 400 plants was discovered on the premises which were seized. Inquiries are ongoing to establish who had been staying at the property.”

■ If you have any information about this incident, the occupants or visitors to the premises, please call PC Chris Belcher at Lowestoft police on 101 quoting reference LO/14/4408, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
