Police seized hundreds of pounds worth of cannabis in separate incidents in East Cambridgeshire, on Sunday.

Officers were carrying out patrols in Burwell following a recent spate of burglaries, when they stopped a car at about 9.40pm.

They carried out a search of the vehicle and discovered £150 worth of cannabis - which was subsequently seized.

At about 1.20pm, police carried out a raid at a house in The Butts, in Soham.

Cannabis was discovered, along with 10 small plants.

A 49-year-old man, from Ely, was issued a caution for the production of cannabis contrary to section 49 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
