IT was funny to see 10 Downing St has a new cat called Larry.
Larry has been bought to deal with a rat problem at the home of the Prime Minister.
ITV reporter, Lucy Manning, had reported on the issue and had asked the Prime Minister’s spokesman, if Downing Street would be getting a cat. She was told no at first, but the government did a U-turn and decided to get a cat.
The cat arrived last week and was reported to being stressed about meeting the Prime Minister.
Lucy Manning had to wait an hour outside 10 Downing Street while a Russian minister departed and the cat rested. But she was finally able to film Larry, although he left four scratch marks on her arm.
After meeting Larry she said she was “happy as Larry” to give up being the cat correspondent.
Meanwhile it is National Chip Week this week (starting Monday, February 21).
If you are a fan of French fries, during this week, you will be able to win the chance to eat them in your dream destination, across the globe.
To win the competition, called The Chip Factor, you have to go to your nearest chippy and film yourself singing a song about chips.

I think if I could eat chips anywhere in the world, it would be in a restaurant on the promenade of a town in the Mediterranean, or in the Caribbean.
Finally let’s hope Liverpool can beat Sparta Prague on Thursday and make it through to the next round of the Europa League.
