The motorcyclist estimates the kitten was no more than eight weeks old.

"(It) was hit by the traffic - it wasn't killed but was seriously hurt," they said.

"With the help of the young truck driver behind me we picked it up and headed straight to Herriot House Veterinary Surgery, but I'm afraid to say the poor little thing died on the way to the vets.

"How can people be so mean?"
