A man has been jailed after police found hundreds of cannabis plants last year.

Bruce Knowles, aged 52, from North Elmham, was jailed for three and a half years at Norwich Crown Court on Thursday, August 5.

Knowles pleaded guilty to the production of cannabis.

His cannabis factory was discovered in September 2020, containing over 350 cannabis plants in various stages of growth, along with hydroponic equipment.
