Sybil the Downing St mouser is dead

Author: By Emily Ashton, Press Association

Mr Darling’s spokeswoman confirmed that the black and white cat died yesterday
at the home of a family friend in London.

Sybil, named after Basil’s wife in the TV show Fawlty Towers, was moved into
the Chancellor’s flat above 11 Downing Street from the Darling family home
in Edinburgh in 2007.

Gordon Brown’s official spokesman told reporters at the time: "The Prime
Minister and Sarah do not have a problem with it.”

But the renowned mouser was eventually taken back to Scotland after failing to
settle.

Sybil’s predecessor Humphrey wandered around Downing Street for years after
first arriving in 1989. But he moved out just six months after Tony Blair
became PM in 1997.
