Pigeon escapes clutches of Downing Street cat

Downing Street's pet cat stalked and then pounced on a pigeon but the bird escaped Larry's claws and flew away as journalists watched on.

The media had gathered in the early hours outside the UK Prime Minister's home expecting a news conference just seven days before the UK turns its back on the EU's single market and customs union on December 31st.

Sources in London and Brussels said a deal was close as Johnson held a late-night conference call with his senior ministers, and negotiators in Brussels pored over reams of legal texts.
