@itvlondon Not all heroes wear capes - some wear red jackets too. What a guy 👏🏻— Ryan (@MillersManiac) April 30, 2017
@itvlondon Flipping marvellous ! Restores your faith in human nature. Well done that man 😀— 'Walter White' (@HankAndMarie) April 30, 2017
Felix the cat is an office pet of the Royal Docks Management Authority. They released a statement assuring the public that the animal has not been injured.
Let's hope Felix the cat gets to thank his saviour one day.
