Dear Christian

Metal-coat the threshold and the outer bottom lip of the door to negate
gnawing (e.g., aluminium or, more attractively, brass threshold cover
plates). If that does not reduce the gap below 6 mm then try this:
metal filled excluder
<https://www.amazon.com/Xcluder-Commercial-Pest-Control-Sweep/dp/B00BXP16BS/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8>.
Install the excluder strip with the door closed. Looks like the strip is
cheaper to buy in the US and ship to the UK than to buy in the UK.

Best
