An appeal for help has been made after a cat went missing from Canning Town.
Tommy was being taken to Celia Hammond Animal Trust for an operation at 8am today (Wednesday, August 4) when he escaped from his basket.
The domestic short-hair tabby ran into Barking Road, double backed at the traffic lights and pelted down Hermit Road, where his owners lost sight of him.
Celia Hammond said: "The owners are devastated so please keep your eyes open for this boy.
"He is very friendly, but now is probably very traumatised and nervous in a place he doesn’t recognise."

It is believed Tommy will have found somewhere to hide near the trust's base – probably within a few hundred yards, Celia explained.
Anyone who spots Tommy is advised not to try and grab him as this might spook him and he could run.
