A cat has survived a 400ft fall.

The lucky pet slipped off the crumbling cliff at Birling Gap in Eastbourne, East Sussex, the Daily Mirror newspaper reports.

The poor animal was found by National Trust staff who took it to a local vets to be treated for a fractured jaw and broken tooth.

A spokesperson for the veterinary surgery said: "He is making a full recovery. He avoided any serious damage to any of his limbs but has some injuries to his face.

"We think he must be quite some way from his home as, from his demeanour, he clearly isn't a feral cat."
