London's feral cats are given new homes in the Midlands

Animal welfare charities in London have said they are being overwhelmed by a huge increase in the number of feral cats, and many have had to be put to sleep.

Now a project run by The Snip Feral and Timid Cat charity is bringing the cats to the Midlands, where the strays are given new homes.

Because the cats are feral they are being put to use on farms, where they are "very good mousers", according to the charity.
