ANIMALS have been removed from a home in Eaton Socon after a dog was found dead inside a flat.
Cambridgeshire Police and animal welfare officers were called to property in Peer Road on Wednesday evening after a neighbour noticed a dog lying on the floor inside the flat.
The property, which is owned by Huntingdonshire Housing Partnership (HHP), is thought to have been lived in by a middle-aged woman who had recently been staying with a friend.
A neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous, told The Hunts Post: "The woman had been leaving her two cats and two dogs overnight and a smell had started coming from the flat.

Huntingdonshire District Council has served a public health order on the property, deeming it prejudicial to health, after animal excrement was found on the floor in the flat.
RSPCA officers said they have re-homed the other animals and were preparing to conduct a post mortem examination on the dead dog.
A spokesman added that following the results of the post mortem examination, they would then decide whether to take any action against the owner.
HHP said it would also be conducting its own inquiry and would consider taking further action against the woman.
