A cannabis factory near Aylsham has been raided by police, who are now tracking down the person who used to live there.

More than 145 cannabis plants, along with growing equipment and chemicals, were found in a house at Sankence on the Cawston Road to the west of the town.

The raid happened at lunchtime last Wednesday as a result of the public contacting the local neighbourhood policing team.

Police said no arrests had been made, but a spokesman added: "We are currently looking for a former female tenant of the property."

Insp Dave Cuff said the operation was another step forward in the force's commitment to driving drug dealers out of local communities to improve the quality of life for local residents.

"Illegal drugs activity will not be tolerated in Norfolk," he added, and warned that police would continue to track down people involved in the production of or dealing in drugs.
