A councillor has tweeted about the 'awkward' moment he buried the wrong cat.

Matt Strong, who represents the ward of Chorlton in Manchester is searching for a dead cat's owner after he witnessed the animal being run over in a hit-and-run accident and thought it was his pet, Gus. Matt assumed the grey tabby was his own three-year-old kitty and gave it a full send off in his garden. Speaking to the Manchester Evening News he explained: "I buried it in my garden. Then my cat was alive and well in my kitchen. I feel really bad for whoever it belongs to. I know exactly how they will feel. It goes to show how fast cars go along Barlow Moor Road."

A man pays PS6,000 to sit in a mop-cupboard on his commute by train into work.

The passenger, who does not want to be named, travels from Ipswich to London five days a week and purchases the ticket every year, but it does not guarantee him a proper seat. He told the Daily Mirror: "I can usually get an official seat on the way in during the morning rush hour, but in the evening, the train I catch, the 6:30, is usually, so full there's no space. "I found this some time ago and I use it quite often. No one seems to mind, but it isn't great."

A couple is selling their house that is perfect for the ultimate animal lover.

It's being sold by Jean Mumbray, 76, and her 56-year-old husband, Alan, and was a rare breeds farm with animals such as sheep, rabbits and poultry, but they transformed it into a zoo because of their obsession with exotic animals.
