Distressing footage of a man appearing to carry off a kitten from an animal shelter in our area has emerged on social media.

Staff at the Hope Animal Shelter at Whitecliffe Cottage near Loftus, found that the four-month-old black and white kitten had disappeared yesterday afternoon.

However when they checked CCTV footage, they were shocked to see a man dressed in a grey hoody and tracksuit bottoms carrying the cat under his right arm.

As the man struggled to climb the gate to make his escape, the animal appeared to be squashed under the man's hand, as he clambered over the high fence.

The shelter are now appealing for the kitten to be returned and have posted the CCTV footage on social media where it has already been viewed thousands of times.

 

Officers from the Redcar Neighbourhood Team seized a moped on West Dyke Road in Redcar as part of Operation Endurance.
