Kitten found on Underground train

A kitten which was found on a London Underground train

A kitten has been found on a London Underground train.

The tiny ball of dark fur - thought to be just four weeks old - was handed in to staff who passed her on to the animal charity Blue Cross.

Veterinary nurses cleaned up the young cat, who was covered in a sticky substance, and named her Victoria after the central London area where Blue Cross have an animal hospital, a charity spokesman said.

Because she is so young and should be feeding from her mother, the nurses have been hand feeding her and providing round-the-clock care.

Victoria, who was found on Monday at around 9pm, is doing well and will be transferred to the charity's re-homing centre in Lewknor, Oxfordshire, on Monday.
