Four kittens have been rescued after they were found to be living on a roof last night (1 October).

The kittens were rescued from the roof of the Masons Arms on Solihull High Street by the Stray Cat Rescue Team West Midlands.

They are said to have lived their entire lives in the gutters on the roof, alongside their mother.

All four kittens and their mother were rescued and have reportedly now been taken in by someone.

Luce Stickland said on Facebook: “What a gruelling week. 4 kittens born and living in the large gutters of a pub. Spent their entire life up there. So inaccessible, so so difficult, yet we have succeeded in catching mommy cat and all 4 kittens."

"The biggest thank you to SCRT new hero Simon, an off duty fire fighter from #SolihullStation.

He had the ladders from the station, he bungeed a trap onto the roof for us, and one by one, little by little, every baby was caught.

He is our very own superman and I won't ever be able to thank him enough. Without you, this rescue wouldn't have happened. So thank you, from all of us."
