Fortunately the cats were found by a dog walker and rescued by local RSPCA inspector Stephen Reeves at around 1.30pm.

They were dumped alongside a cardboard box with a pink jumper inside.

Inspector Reeves said: “This was a senseless act - the person who has done this clearly had no thought for the poor cats’ well-being. They were lucky to be found.

“When I got there the kittens were hiding in a large area of stinging nettles but fortunately were tempted by some food. Mum was very distressed and nervous and needed to be caught in a trap as I couldn’t get close.

“They would have struggled to survive as they are obviously used to being in a house.”
