Watch: Shocking bodycam video shows 167 animals crammed in cages at filthy house

Shocking body-cam footage shows the moment police discovered a staggering 167 animals crammed inside cages at a filthy and squalid house.

Officers visited the property after a 999 call was made over concerns about a bad smell and flies buzzing at the windows in February.

Cops entered the address in Cromwell Road, Rushden, Northants., and were left stunned to find 167 rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, mice, guinea pigs and birds inside.

The poor animals were living in cramped, dirty and unsuitable conditions - including some forced to share cages with dead animals.

Body-cam footage captured police arriving at the address and one female officer saying: "I've never seen anything like it."

Dozens of cages containing animals can be seen piled on top of each other inside every room as the officer makes her way around the small property.
