An investigation has been launched after police discovered a ‘substantial’ cannabis farm.

Norfolk Police said they had been acting on intelligence when they located a large number of cannabis plants at a property in Wisbech. 

The find on Tuesday, April 27 included an operation with special lights and ventilation to help grow the plants, which have been seized. 

Last November a similar cannabis factory with 130 plants worth more than £100,000 was found in a house on Verdun Road in Wisbech.

Meanwhile in August police arresting two people on suspicion of burglary in Wisbech found 11 rooms stuffed with £170,000 worth of cannabis plants.

In a tweet Norfolk Police said enquiries were ongoing into the latest discovery.
