The organisation published a picture of the rescued cat in one of their patrol vehicles yesterday on social media, with the message: “One little kitten safely rescued from the M18. Thank you to everyone who reported this to (South Yorkshire Police) and and to ourselves.

The officer who rescued the cat later told The Star: “Not sure how it got there. But got it with great difficulty. It was a feisty one.”

The kitten is now being looking after safely.
