A man who was jailed for production of cannabis at a pig farm which had an estimated street value of £80,000 has had a hearing to claw back cash adjourned.

Mark Jude, 50, of West Carr Road, Attleborough, was jailed for 40 months in April 2017, after admitting production of cannabis in May 2016.

Norwich Crown Court heard the police executed a drugs warrant at Hale Road, in Bradenham, near Dereham, and found 113 plants in one building and 50 plants in another.

A police expert estimated the street value to be £61,000 to £81,000.

Jude was back in court on Monday for a Proceeds of Crime hearing.
