A missing cat has been rescued from a train - after stowing away in the undercarriage for 1,700 miles. Polly the tabby, who had a badly-broken leg, is thought to have climbed on board the high speed express near her home in Plymouth.
She then spent two days trapped under the front carriage as the train thundered between the West Country, London and South Wales.
The two-year-old was only discovered when train manager Emily Mahoney-Smith heard her miaowing for help when the train stopped briefly on its way to Cornwall.
Emily said the cat could only have got into the sealed unit when the panels were removed for maintenance at the shunting depot near her home.
She is now recovering at the vets in Penzance.
