A 19-year-old man has been charged after a cat was killed and others were badly injured in shootings in Surrey.

The injured pets needed amputations following air rifle attacks in Cranleigh, Guildford and Woking in March and April.

Police said Franky Mills, of Long Gore in Farncombe, faces eight charges of criminal damage and eight of a firearms offence.

A five-year-old cat called Ruby was shot in the spine and put down by vets.

Another cat in Cranleigh survived but lost her eye.

Police said Mr Mills had been released on bail and is due to appear before Guildford magistrates on 9 August.
