Police are appealing for information after reports of cats being shot in Bassetlaw.

Two cats were shot at on July 5, with the pets both requiring operations, which they have both survived.

One of the cats was also shot in June 2019 too, five weeks previous.

Nottinghamshire Police said it is not known where the incidents happened exactly, but it's believed they happened in the Tuxford area, as the cats don't stray far from their home address.
