10 DOWNING STREET STORY: Downing Street's resident cat Larry emerged from No.

10 unfazed as he stretched out in front of a large media pack on Tuesday (July 23), soon before the expected announcement of the UK's new prime minister.

Boris Johnson and his rival, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, have spent the last month crossing the country seeking to win over the fewer than 200,000 Conservative Party members who will choose Britain's new leader.

The winner will be announced at about 1045 GMT at an event near parliament and will formally take over as prime minister on Wednesday (July 24) afternoon, succeeding Theresa May, who stepped down over her failure to get parliament to ratify her Brexit deal.

Nigel Evans, conservative backbench MP, told the BBC: "The only thing that's certain is that Larry the cat is going to stay in place as the Downing Street cat.

Prime ministers come and go, Larry remains in place." (Production: Lucy Marks)
