Officers stopped a Vauxhall Corsa van on the A11 at Wymondham at 9.30pm on Wednesday and seized a large quantity of what’s believed to be Class A drugs, a quantity of cash and two mobile phones.

A 52-year-old man and a 22-year-old man, both from the London area, have been arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug.

They both remain in custody at this time.
