In a statement released a short time ago, Norfolk Police said officers were conducting routine inquiries at the property on Saturday morning when the search was conducted.

The force added: “The chemicals have since been examined by Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service, along with officers from Norfolk Police.

“It has been established they are not a cause for concern and no longer form part of the investigation.”

A man in his 50s, a second man in his 20s and a woman in her 20s, were arrested on suspicion of firearms offences.

They have now been released on police bail, pending further inquiries.

Police say a cordon remains in place around the property and inquiries are continuing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Swaffham CID, via the non-emergency 101 number, quoting incident number 159 of July 10.
