Capt Tom, originally from Keighley, has raised more than £29m for the NHS by walking laps of his garden.

Staff at the RSPCA's Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and District said they wanted to mark the achievement and Capt Tom's special day by naming their most recent resident after him.

Fay Gibbons, from the RSPCA, said: “The whole nation has been cheering on Capt Tom Moore with his amazing fundraising.

"We wanted to wish Tom a very happy 100th birthday and say thank you to such an incredible man, so we thought this would be a lovely way."

Much like his namesake, the charity say the feline Capt Tom is "active and would love a garden to explore".

Huddersfield: Labour hold

Labour MP for Huddersfield Barry Sheerman has retained his seat, with a significantly decreased majority.

The Labour MP beat Conservative Ken Davy by 4,937 votes, less than half the majority at the 2017 election.

James Wilkinson of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Andrew Cooper came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 1.5 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 42,000 people, 63.9% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the five candidates, Mr Cooper and Stuart Hale (The Brexit Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
