PARK­ING war­den Wayne Cherry has been dubbed ‘Doc­tor Dolit­tle’ by his work­mates after sav­ing four stray kit­tens from within a whisker of be­ing run-over.

Mr Cherry, a park­ing en­force­ment of­fi­cer for AP­COA Park­ing, came to the res­cue of the five-week old kit­tens while out and about on his scooter in New Road, Har­ling­ton.

The kit­tens wan­dered out into the mid­dle of the road just as Mr Cherry was driv­ing past them, nar­rowly es­cap­ing be­ing hit.

“I have stum­bled across many things as a civil en­force­ment of­fi­cer, but it was a no-brainer to help save th­ese four stray kit­tens,” Mr Cherry said. Once col­lected, the kit­tens were re­housed at Bat­tersea Dogs and Cats Home in Old Wind­sor, where some have al­ready been re­served by fam­i­lies will­ing to adopt.

The kit­tens are not the first pet res­cue Mr Cherry has made dur­ing his work­ing day.

A few years ago he came to the aid of six duck­lings who had be­come lost and ended up in Corn­wall Road, Uxbridge.

He man­aged to guide them all safely back to wa­ter.
