A CAT which had been hiding under the bonnet of its owner’s car jumped out on the motorway and headed for an industrial estate.

John Pickles said he was travelling along the M65 towards Colne on Sunday when he heard rattling coming from the engine.

When he slowed down and pulled over on to the hard shoulder, his 11-year-old cat Tibb emerged and ran on to Lomeshaye industrial estate, Nelson.

He is appealing for anyone who sees the black and white cat, which has a tooth missing, to get in touch.
