A cat was beaten and run over by a motorcycle in Wrexham, the RSPCA has said.

Jinxy was found dead with "horrendous" injuries on Glaslyn in Acrefair.

RSPCA Cymru has been told people witnessed the cat being beaten and run over and officers have asked anyone with information to come forward.

The cat was found with tyre tread marks on his back and tail, and he is believed to have suffered a broken pelvis and a head injury.

RSPCA inspector Phil Lewis said: "It is unthinkable why anyone would put a defenceless animal through this experience deliberately."

Jinxy's family said he was the "most friendly cat imaginable", known by everyone in the community.
