Norwich police searched a home in the city this morning and found rooms with rows of the plants growing, beneath lighting rigs.

The raid took place in Bobbin Road, close to Mile Cross Road at 8.45am today.

A man in his 20s, from the Norwich area, has been arrested.

Last month, a dog walker led police to uncover one of Norfolk’s biggest ever cannabis factories.

More than 4,000 plants were found at an abandoned garden centre on Holt Road in Felthorpe, after the dog walker smelled cannabis and notified the police.

They were being grown in a number of old sheds and greenhouses - siphoning off electricity in the process.

April also saw the discovery of cannabis plants inside a home in Sprowston.

Officers carried out a warrant at the property on Blue Boar Lane, near Wroxham Road, at around 6.50am on Tuesday, April 17.

Police said more than 100 plants were seized in the raid.

Anyone with information about drugs should contact Norfolk Police on 101. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
