A man in his 20s was arrested at the University of East Anglia after reports he had a large quantity of Class A drug wraps. 

Officers attended University Drive at the UEA at 10.30pm on Saturday, April 17 and arrested the man from Norwich on suspicion of possession with intent to supply.

He was taken to Wymondham Investigation Centre for questioning.

Following the officer's discovery, they then searched a property in Norwich and found "even more illegal drugs" - alongside money, mobile phones and other "drugs paraphernalia".

The man has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
