The adventurous moggy had to be rescued after falling into the roof top of HSBC bank in Allhallows, Bedford, last Wednesday.

RSPCA rescuers were called in after he was discovered by staff trapped in a central courtyard on the second floor, which is surrounded by 12ft walls.

Charity inspector Cherry Evans said: “Poor Banksy was very scared, nervous and hungry. We do not know how long he had been there, but possibly a few days.

“He wouldn’t have been able to get himself out, bless him. Now that he is safe is a lovely animal - so friendly and sweet natured. I feel sure he has an owner somewhere.

“But he had no microchip and we are not sure where he came from. He was wearing a yellow florescent collar.”

Anyone with information about who the owner is should contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018.
