Two cut kittens were found by cops dumped in a suspected DRUGS DEN.
Officers from Ealing Anti-Social Behaviour Team made the discovery while patrolling the Green Man estate in west London after seeing a man loitering near a boarded up house.
The man said he was trying to visit friends in the property, and officers forced entry to ensure no-one was inside.
They found evidence of Class A drug use but no-one there, and as they continued their search, they found the kittens abandoned in the corner.
The two animals were gathered up and taken to a vet before they were collected by the RSPCA who will now rehouse them.
A police spokesman said: “We are a new team created to tackle ASB across the borough. We were in the area to tackle drug use and were really surprised to find the kittens.
“I am so glad we were able to rescue them and hopefully they will find a loving home to go to.”
