Police in Northampton are hunting for a man who subjected a cat to a horrendous attack outside the town's railway station last night.
Members of the public reported to officers that they saw the man "throwing the animal around and lying on top of it."
The assault happened on Black Lion Road shortly before 8pm last night (March 2).
The man is described as being in his 50s and 60s with long grey or dark hair. He was wearing a black leather jacket and jeans.
Police say that there has been no trace of either the man or the cat since the attack.
Cloudy with some rain first thing, perhaps locally sleet or snow, however this will soon clear to leave a bright and breezy day.Read the full story ›

Prince William has passed the 14 exams required to qualify as a civilian helicopter pilot and work as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
He began studying last September. He now has to undergo some extra training with Bond Air Services, who'll be his employer, and this will start shortly after the current tour. He's expected to be fully operational by early summer.
The Prince will be flying out of Cambridge and Norwich. He'll work full time on a shift system, but allowances will be made for his continuing royal duties. He'll mix the two. William will earn around £40,000 but will donate it all to charity.
Kensington Palace will remain his main residence, but the family will almost certainly spent more time at Anmer Hall on the Sandringham estate, which the Queen gave to her grandson.
