Police have seized around 50 suspected cannabis plants, with a potential street value up to £50,000, in a raid on a house in Yate.

South Gloucestershire officers, supported by specialist firearms officers, searched the property on Thursday 2nd September.

They recovered plants, hydroponic equipment and a BB gun, and arrested a 31-year-old man, who remains in police custody.
