Larry the cat outfoxes not-so-sly fox outside No10

Larry the cat may be the #1 mouser at 10 Downing Street, but the feisty feline recently took on a red fox and won.

The chief mouser to the cabinet stalked, and then chased, the fox into some bushes under the cover of darkness.

Larry was having none of the intrusion to his territory — even as the fox returned and tried to hide behind a lamppost. One steely glare and the fox was gone.
