Sheffield estate has become a 'highway for rats'

Rodents are on the increase

It's been claimed that an epidemic of rats are plaguing a Sheffield housing estate

Shaun Outram has lived in the Page Hall area for 15 years but claims there has been a dramatic rise in the number of rodents there in recent years. He says it follows an increase of rubbish that's dumped in the streets which is attracting the vermin.

Now Shaun is worried about the health of residents in the area which he says has become 'like a highway for rats'. We must warn you that Martin Fisher's report does contain images you might find distressing.
