A cat's owner was left stunned when their pet brought home a bag full of what is thought to be class A drugs.

The stash was found in the cat's bed at its home in St Pauls in Bristol, with the feline "curled up next to it", according to Avon and Somerset Police.

A picture posted on the Avon and Somerset Police Twitter account shows more than a handful of white and lilac individual wraps in a carrier bag.

"Forget police dogs, we should start training up cats," the force wrote alongside the snap showing the 30 small portions.

Ashley Police also tweeted the picture, saying: "Look what the cat dragged in. Great result in St Paul's when a resident's cat brought this in during the night! The owner got a bit of a shock but called us straight away!"

A spokesperson told The Independent that police were making enquiries but the "priority remained the safety of the owner and the pet".

No arrests have yet been made in connection with the discovery.
