Giant rats make nest in van's engine and gorge on greasy takeaways

Thursday 30/08/2018


A worker was left stunned after finding a huge rats' nest and the remains of a greasy feast under a van's bonnet. The engine block was clogged with takeaway food including chicken nuggets and chicken wings. Shocked Laura Frackelton snapped a picture of the mess inside her partner's vehicle. She told the Liverpool Echo that rats were stealing food from bins and eating it inside their nest in the engine.

It comes after a mum discovered an enormous rat larger than her foot in her back garden in Huyton on Friday.

Horrifying images suggest it was one of the biggest rats to be found in Merseyside in recent times.

Louise Richards, who found the dead rat, said it was “like nothing she’d ever seen". However, locals claim to have seen even bigger rats, with many coming forward to share rodent horror stories of their own.

Sharon Pollard, who shared a picture of a dead rat on a badminton racquet, said: “I have the same problem. This one was found on Tuesday at the side of my house, still waiting for call back from housing.

“I have three kids, nine, five and 14-weeks-old it’s disgusting the way they leave it.” Another resident, who did not want to be named, shared a video of a rat infested alleyway in Kensington and said: “This is in an alleyway in Kensington at 14.30 in the afternoon, they looked like they were at a all inclusive holiday.”

Karen Ocquaye also sent in a picture of a huge dead rat in the alleyway entry of Woodbine Street, Kirkdale, nestled under a chocolate wrapper.

And Barry Levans got in touch to share images of rabbit-like rats roaming his back garden in Longview, Huyton.

Other ECHO readers have named and shamed rat hot-spot areas in Merseyside on social media.
