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.

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.

"The man we issued a ticket to for too many passengers was in his thirties.

"A child was in the front in the car seat and then three adults were in the back with a young boy on the lap of one.

"They pulled into the pub layby we were in with the man and the cannabis."
