A cat rescue charity says it has seen the highest number of abandoned cats and kittens during its 21-year history.

Yorkshire Cat Rescue near Keighley has taken in 450 animals so far this year.

Sara Atkinson, the charity's founder, said: "It's heartbreaking and very difficult.

"We've seen lots of young kittens living in pens waiting for their forever homes."
