Around 300 cannabis plants were recovered by officers from a property in Hasse Road, where a 56-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and possession of a firearm.

A 59-year-old woman was arrested at a property in Mepal on suspicion of producing cannabis. Both are in custody at Parkside Police Station.

The raids follow the discovery of a £6million cannabis factory in Regal Drive last week, where thousands of plants were discovered growing in a disused industrial unit.
