A 37-year-old man has been jailed for two years for growing cannabis in a secret, underground room.

Rikki Sayer, of Dereham Road, was arrested in July 2013 after officers found 180 cannabis plants, with a street value of £20,000, in a purpose-built room underneath a garden workshop in Dereham Road.

Sayer was charged and later found guilty of production of a class B controlled drug.

He was sentenced to two years in prison at Norwich Crown Court on Wednesday, June 4, and also received a confiscation order under the Proceeds of Crimes Act 2002 for £1,408.
