A kitten caused havoc in Austria after going on the run from police, who had to dismantle a force car to rescue her.

Police and firefighters were called to a Vienna suburb after residents heard desperate meowing and a night-long search ensued.

When the cat was discovered under the bonnet of a car, she sprang away from police and took refuge behind several cars until seemingly disappearing - until her meowing started again. The wayward animal's calls for help were traced to a police car.

It took half-an-hour's hard work boosting the car up on a jack before the cat was released from a small space inside the vehicle's floor panel.

She did have the last word, however. Firefighter Franz Zehetmeier, who finally collared the cat, said: "It bit my finger!"
