A cannabis factory has been discovered in Great Yarmouth this morning after emergency services attended a property over concerns of a liquid in a property.

The Norfolk and Fire Rescue Service were called to Lancaster Road at about 7.50am.

Norfolk police were also called and a spokeswoman said neighbours of the property had alerted them about concerns over the liquid, leading to the discovery of the cannabis factory.

There is still a large emergency services presence at the scene, with five fire engines and ambulance and police present. The middle of Lancaster Road is sealed off.

Near neighbours have been advised of the situation but not told to leave their homes.

Once the fire brigade have contained the situation the police say they can then start investigating the cannabis factory find.
