WESTBROOK has a massive rat issue.

They are breeding in the pond by the traffic lights at Asda and running up and down Westbrook Crescent.

The whole area is covered in them.

As I sit in my living room writing to you, I can see three in the street now.

Yesterday, I nearly ran two over in my car just leaving the street.

I have contacted the council numerous times and they fail to do anything.

I’ve also contacted Asda and the Odeon for help but to no avail.

We cannot carry on like this.

The council has a duty of care to help us and they are failing.

I have four children and I’m afraid to let them play out due to the heavy rat situation.

I’m also very concerned about other people with them around so much.
