An unknown child has left heart-wrenching notes along a street in Greater Manchester begging motorists to drive carefully, after the family cat was killed by a car.
The notes, in a child's handwriting, say: "My cat got killed here. Please go slow animals crossing."
The notes appeared around Old Meadow Lane in Hale.
The display has been dubbed "more powerful than a normal street sign" by a former councillor in the area.
Neil Taylor said: "I spotted them as I was out and about earlier.
"There are about half a dozen of them tied to lampposts and things.
"It's obvious it's a child's handwriting so it really pulls at the heartstrings.
"For me it's more powerful than a normal street sign. A child saying directly that my cat has been killed here and please go slow."
