More than 90 cannabis plants found in a remote part of the Norfolk Broads, have been seized by police.

The plants, standing between 6ft and 8ft (1.8m to 2.4m) tall, were discovered by Environment Agency staff off Ferry Lane, Postwick, on Friday.

The lane runs from the village through woodland towards the River Yare.

PC Paul Bassham said the plants were in "an extremely remote area" of the 116 sq-mile national park, which has more than seven million visitors a year.

He said a similar discovery was made last summer.

"In June last year 60 plants were found growing in an area off the River Bure close to Ranworth Broad," he said.
