Officers found such a big cannabis factory they had to call in their traffic cop colleagues to help dismantle it.

The Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing team based in Acle sent a tweet about the successful drugs warrant which was executed by officers in Great Yarmouth on Thursday afternoon.

The traffic officer said so much cannabis had to be bagged up to be disposed of, police in Great Yarmouth needed “additional hands to help dismantle” to farm.

The class B drug and the associated paraphernalia will now be destroyed by the police.
