A cat home alone in Germany apparently turned on a vacuum cleaner, frightened itself half to death and wound up being attended to by emergency services.

Police in the Bavarian city of Bayreuth said a neighbour heard the cat's cries - not to mention a vacuum left running for hours - and feared there had been a terrible accident.

When the fire service reached the scene on Monday night they found only the cat and the vacuum.

A police statement on Tuesday said the emergency call was not entirely in vain, though, because "at least the cat could be calmed down".
