  11. Lorry driver saves kitten on motorway

    A lorry driver has been praised for stopping his HGV to save a tiny kitten apparently dumped on the M27 motorway.

    Richard Tubbs spotted a "little black thing" on the tarmac when he was in a tailback near Hedge End last month.

    He got out of his cab to rescue the cat and took it to Seadown Vetinary Services in the New Forest where the kitten, since named Monica, was cared for and weaned. It has since been adopted by the family of one of the staff.

    Veterinary nurse Amanda Holyoake said it was a "truly compassionate act".

    Quote Message: I adore all animals and I couldn't bear to think of something suffering, so I stopped, put on all my hazard warning lights and climbed down from the cab to see what it was.To my utter amazement it was the smallest, baby kitten you have ever seen just lying in the centre of the M27. from Richard Tubbs Lorry driver
