The black and white cat was spotted on the Newmarket flyover on Friday morning, huddling against the barrier.

Police briefly shut the northbound lanes as they attempted to catch the kitten but it ran into bushes.

They asked for people to keep an eye out for the kitten, but to report any sighting to police and not to stop on the motorway.
