A tenant at a block of flats in northern Sweden made a disturbing discovery in the communal launderette on Tuesday.

Someone had put a cat in one of the washing machines, newspaper Västerbotten Kuriren reports.

The tenant managed to get the cat out of the machine before it reached 90 degrees celsius, but it had to be put down by vets soon afterwards due to its injuries.

Police say two teenagers are suspected of animal cruelty.
