The case of six men and a boy charged with running a £1m cannabis factory on a Norfolk industrial estate has been adjourned.

Officers seized more than 1,000 cannabis plants as they disassembled an “extremely professional” set-up inside a two-storey building in Lenwade, between Norwich and Fakenham in July last year.

Six defendants have since denied producing a quantity of cannabis, a controlled drug of class B.

They are:

Vedot Koc, 42, from London; Leonardo Motera, 18, from London; Mevlan Cena, 22, of no fixed address; Potja Shprim, 31, of no fixed address; Viktor Mihayov, 23, from London; Kien Le, 26, of no fixed address and a 15-year-old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons.

The matter was re-listed for May 29.
