A boy's been caught on a dashcam shaking and kicking a cat in Poole - police and the RSPCA are looking for him.

People reported the boy after seeing him shaking the animal by the scruff of the neck before kicking it as he dropped it to the ground.

He was spotted attacking the cat while walking with a group of five young people - four boys and a girl with long dark hair - at the junction of Sherborne Road and Adastral Road in Canford Heath Poole on April 28 at 6.22pm.
