Inspector is commended

AN RSPCA inspector has clinched a top gong.

Inspector Dave McAdam, who covers Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, was awarded the Dave Millard Award for exemplary special investigation at the RSPCA Honours Awards.

He was commended after an owner whose cat was subject to offences under the Animal Welfare Act wrote to him expressing her thanks for the “professional and caring” way he dealt with the situation.

The awards were presented by actor Brian Blessed.
