Missing Filey cat reunited with owners after mysterious 85-mile journey
A kitten that went missing from home on the Yorkshire Coast has been reunited with its owners after mysteriously reappearing 85 miles away.
Loki's owners, mum Clair Harrison and children Ben, 10, and George, six, were "overjoyed" to be reunited with the cat, which otherwise has no connection to the city.

RSPCA inspector Adam Dickinson said: "I don't think we'll ever find out how Loki managed to get to Bradford, to be honest.
"She's travelled quite a distance from Filey to York – she's certainly not walked that.
"We just don’t know whether someone has taken her and then let her out in the city. But the main thing is she is back with her owners, unharmed and doing well."
The cat's owners were traced using a microchip after Loki walked into a house in Bradford. They were reunited at York Animal Home.
A new collar has since been bought for Loki which tracks the kitten's location.
The RSPCA said the unusual ordeal highlights the importance of microchipping pets and keeping database contact details up to date.
