A mischief of up to 30 rats were spotted scurrying along the streets of Plymouth city centre today.
One video was taken of the rodents along Armada Way.
ITV West Country also caught a few on camera during a live broadcast with our reporter on the evening programme.
The council said it is dealing with the matter and has laced the streets with poison.
Rats expert say climate change causing milder winters is partly to blame, along with rubbish and food not being disposed of properly.
