PC Gray, who covers Bradford, said about the incident on Twitter: "Last night I came across a cat in the middle of the road which was injured. Being the animal lover that I am I couldn’t leave it where it was. I could hear the cat crying so I picked her up, put her in my Police car and blue lighted her to the vets where she is being treated.

"Thankfully she was chipped so the only will hopefully be able to be traced by the vets. The cops are not always all about crime."
