The missing cat who hitched a ride to Bath
A family are appealing for information after their beloved cat hopped aboard a van for an unplanned trip to Bath.
The White family from Norton St Philip are desperate for information about their seven-year-old black tabby cat Tamba.
The cat jumped into a neighbour's van last Friday and travelled the eight miles to Bath without him noticing.
He spotted it only when it hopped out at Green Park Station and ran off in the direction of James Street West.

Mum Sharon White, said the whole family – husband Allen, and children Justina, 21, Carl, 19, Hannah, 11, and James, seven – were keen to find Tamba.
Mrs White said she and her husband had been to Bath over the weekend and searched the streets around Green Park Station but said the family were now appealing for the public's help.
She said: "Hannah, our youngest daughter, has made a poster which we have put up in Sainsbury's and posted through all the surrounding flats and houses with the hope that someone may spot or even take in Tamba."
The family have also contacted pet shops in the city, the RSPCA and the Bath Cats and Dogs Home.
Mrs White said: "They have all said that frightened or lost cats tend to hide for a couple of days before they start to come out into a new and what is a far busier environment."
Anyone with information about Tamba's whereabouts should call 01373 834929.
