No arrests made as police continue hunt for people behind Terrington St Clement cannabis factory
Police are continuing their investigations into a large cannabis factory discovered on farmland in the Fens last week.
Officers found more than 1,000 cannabis plants being grown under a sophisticated set-up with lights and ventilation installed in a self-contained unit within a barn last Thursday evening.
It is understood no one was on the premises when officers arrived but police believe somebody had been in the barn, in Terrington St Clement, earlier in the day.
Forensic examinations have now finished and police officers have cleared the site, just off Station Road and close to the busy A17, of all the plants. It is believed the cannabis plants have a combined street value of �100,000.
A Norfolk Police spokesman today confirmed no arrests have been made and that investigations are continuing.

He later added: 'There are 12 individual chambers in here with plants all at different stages of growth. There is no indication at the moment how long they have been here for.'
