A teenage boy from Essex is in custody this evening after being arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

It comes after a warrant was executed under the Misuse of Drugs Act on Sprowston Road, and a 17-year-old boy from the Essex area was arrested.

Police said they seized approximately 30 wraps of what is believed to be Class A crack cocaine and heroin during the search of the property.

Since Norfolk Police launched Operation Gravity in December 2016, 35 people under the age of 18 have been arrested in Norfolk.

The operation was intended to tackle the rising problem of violence associated with the drug trade, with thousands of pounds in drugs and cash seized over recent months.
