Police stopped a speeding van on a city road and found a stash of cannabis which was seized from the driver.

Officers from the Norwich North Safer Neighbourhood Team saw a van going too fast on Harvey Lane, on Sunday, September 1, at 6.15pm.

And after pulling the van over on Yarmouth Road, the stop led to a seizure of cannabis from the driver, a man aged in his twenties.

At 6.44pm, Norwich Police tweeted: "Whilst stopped a car pulled up next to them with a child on a rear passenger's lap, another driver reported."

PC Shaun Quinn said: "We haven't had chance to weigh the cannabis yet as we haven't got back to the station. The male with the cannabis has been released to be followed up another day.
