A cat has died after being kicked by robbers during a raid in Doncaster.
South Yorkshire Police said the cat was attacked as four men broke into a flat in St Nicholas Road, Thorne, and stole cash.
They also assaulted a woman, who escaped with minor injuries.

“I would like to appeal to anyone who knows who could be responsible to come forward and contact police.
“If you saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area or have any information please call 101."
All four men involved in the raid were white.
