Larry the cat replaced with Gary the rottweiler

THERESA May has unveiled the new Downing Street pet, a 150-pound rottweiler called ‘Gary’.

Gary will take over Larry the cat’s pest control duties as well as assisting the new prime minister in discussions with foreigners.

The four-year old dog, whose previous role was guarding a scrapyard in Harlesden, will also attend Cabinet meetings.

A Downing Street spokesman said: “The prime minister and Gary are of one mind when it comes to dealing with unwanted intruders. They also share a deep suspicion of strangers and a fondness for raw meat.

“With his take-no-prisoners approach to his opponents, Gary is the ideal companion for Mrs May and the perfect representative of Brexit Britain.”
