Concern for cat welfare in Gainsborough

Officers attended a property at Portland Terrace, Gainsborough on Thursday 9th September following reports of people gathering outside.

This was believed to relate to a number of cats being kept at the address.

Two separate incidents were reported to us – one at 6:16pm and another at 8:49pm. No arrests were made during either incident and on both occasions, the groups left the area.

West Lindsey Community Policing Inspector Gary Brockie said: “This morning, officers along with an RSPCA Inspector and a housing officer from West Lindsey District Council attended the address at Portland Terrace. This is not a police-led investigation however, we continue to work with and support the RSPCA who have the relevant information and expertise.

“My request is that those who have previously felt the need to gather in the location to please stop doing so as this will support the relevant agencies to conduct their enquiries into this sensitive incident in an unhindered manner.”

A spokesperson from the RSPCA said: “We are working closely with police and partner agencies, however, we are unable to comment on specific incidents.”
