Two men have been arrested after a quantity of drugs were seized in Norwich.

Police attended an address in Magpie Road at around 2.40pm on Wednesday (May 6) and seized a quantity of Class A drugs, along with mobile phones and cash.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said both men have since been released under investigation and enquiries are ongoing.

Norwich Police provided details of the incident on social media, and said there had been signs of “cuckooing”.

Cuckooing is a practice in which drug dealers take over the home of a vulnerable person in order to use it as a base for county lines drug trafficking.

They said on Twitter: “Yesterday afternoon Norwich #NPT disrupted another #CountyLines operation after spotting signs of cuckooing at a #Norwich address. #NESNT #Team1 & #Team4 assisted. 2 young males from London arrested, significant amounts of class A drugs, cash & mobile devices seized. #OpGravity”.
