"10 Downing Street, The Treasury and the Foreign Office all now have cats," said Labour London Assembly member Tom Copley.

He has tabled a question to the mayor: "Given the problem with mice in the building will you consider getting a cat for City Hall, preferably rehoming one from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home?"

Sadiq Khan's response will be published later this month.
