A cat has been rescued after two nights stuck on a 90ft (27m) railway bridge.

The grey and white male, which had been stranded on the ledge of the viaduct since Wednesday, was brought to safety at about 12:00 GMT.

Firefighters, working with the RSPCA, brought the cat down from the bridge on Chestergate in Stockport.

The charity said the cat is not microchipped but was wearing a blue collar and appealed for its owner to contact them.

An RSPCA spokesman said: "It has been taken to RSPCA Greater Manchester Animal Hospital to be checked over by a vet and receive some TLC."

RSPCA inspector Heather Morris said the cat was wearing a "soft and velvety light blue collar with no bell".
