After the two black and white, ginger and tabby cats were found in Weston Road last week they were handed over to the RSPCA, who said their lives were put at risk by being placed in a box with no food or water during the hot weather.

RSPCA inspector Craig Plumley, who collected the cats, said: 'This is very hot weather, even overnight, and to leave four cats in such a confined space with no food and water was clearly endangering their lives.

'It really does upset us when we have to deal with incidents like this when our RSPCA centres are already full to bursting with unwanted cats and kittens.

'The cats appear to be unrelated and had not been socialised together before being dumped in the box.
