A car "deliberately trying to avoid the police" in a coastal village was pulled over and its occupants were arrested on suspicion of dealing drugs.

Officers stopped a car on Hall Road, Hopton-on-Sea, at 6.10pm on Thursday, March 11.

It aroused suspicion after it seemed to be "trying to deliberately avoid the police car."

A search of the vehicle then found items suggesting the driver and passenger were cannabis dealers, with two 18-year-old men arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs.

They were later released under investigation.

One of the men was also arrested and charged for driving without a licence and insurance.

He was released on bail for these offences and is due to appear at Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court on March 24.
