A curious cat found itself in the back of a police car in the early hours of Monday morning. The feline hopped into the car as officers responding to a call in Carshalton, in the London borough of Sutton, opened the doors.
Sutton police constables Kevin Monk, Liane Walker and Sophie Heywood opened the doors of their patrol car at 4am to see the fluffy white moggy jump in.
The cat quickly made itself comfortable on the parcel shelf, but as PC Monk went to remove it, it grabbed the steering wheel.
Unfortunately the officers had to call time on the cat's antics and left it on the pavement as they drove off.
PC Walker said: "When the cat had been removed, it just sat there staring at the car as if it wanted to come back in.
"The cat was lovely and looked really happy in the car."
