A Siamese cat recently named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's oldest living has died.

Scooter celebrated his 30th birthday on 26 March.

His owner, Gail Floyd of Mansfield, Texas, said he had died by the time Guinness confirmed his title on 8 April.

Local vet Tricia Latimer said Scooter lived to the equivalent of about 136 human years.
