Meet George – the kitten who was shot five times by an air rifle on his own doorstep.

Vets say the 10-month-old family pet was shot at such close range that one pellet lodged in his kidney and four went straight through his intestines.

Owner Karen Ricketts, who lives in Loughton, said: “We have been devastated by this senseless act of violence.”

Anybody with information should call police or RSPCA.
