A litter of abandoned kittens have been rehomed after they were found abandoned near a housing development. 

The four little kittens were found by a forklift truck driver on Chancery Park in Exning, near Newmarket. 

The driver was working on the latest part of the Persimmon Homes development, before alerting the site team.
