A police spokesman said: "The force wants to ensure the county remains a hostile environment for those involved in the supply of drugs. Our local communities have an important role to play in this too.

"Don't turn a blind eye, talk to us about your concerns and we will work together to resolve the issue."

The spokesman added: "Enquiries are ongoing and anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area should contact Halesworth police, quoting crime number 37/49599/21."
