A cat who escaped from her German owners when she stopped at services in Maidstone has been found after five weeks on the run.

After living in Leeds for six years, Ina Pautz was driving back to her native Germany and stopped briefly at Maidstone services.

But her cat Kosey, escaped from the car and would not return.

Ina was forced to continue her journey home and later appealed on Facebook for help finding her pet.

The cat was discovered by 16-year-old Courtney Weeks, 16, when they stopped off at the services with her mum.

A vet scanned its chip and tracked down Kosey's owner in Germany.

Kosey is now in a cattery in Wateringbury waiting for his owner to collect him.
