Police have cautioned the owner of two dogs which were left to "run wild" in a city suburb, leading to the death of multiple cats.

The notice comes after a beloved family cat called 'Frosty' was killed by the dogs in Tippett Close, Bowthorpe, on July 27.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said: "The owner of the dogs was issued with a Community Protection Notice on August 2.

"It includes the conditions to secure and maintain fencing where the dogs are kept, and also to keep the dogs on a lead at all times in public places.

"Failure to adhere to the conditions in the Community Protection Notice can lead to the issue of a fine and prosecution."
