A cache of weapons and drugs has been seized in two police raids.

The haul of knives, imitation guns, drugs and cash was found at two addresses in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, and nearby Caister-on-Sea on Wednesday.

A man, 67 and from the Great Yarmouth area, and a 29-year-old man, from the Caister area, have been arrested.

They will be questioned on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs, following the Operation Gravity drug crackdown raids.

Det Sgt Paul Morton, of Norfolk police, said: "We have been able to seize a number of weapons and whilst we do not believe the wider public were at risk, we are able to prevent them getting into the wrong hands or being used to commit further crime."

The items - which included knuckle-dusters and nunchucks - were discovered at properties on Church Court, Great Yarmouth, and Beach Road, Caister.
