Footage captures rats around bin bags in Harrow car park

More than 100 complaints about rats and mice were made on average to London councils every day over the past five years, figures reveal.

A report was compiled by London Assembly member Susan Hall, who said she created it after seeing footage online of rats swarming around bin bags in a Harrow car park.

She said the report showed the problem was getting worse, and called on the mayor to co-ordinate action to tackle the problem.

Caren Duhig, founder of the Fixit Harrow Network that provided the footage said: "This footage was taken in July and since then, Harrow Council have worked very hard to improve the borough by tackling rodent infested sites, cracking down on fly tipping and supplying more domestic and commercial bins to the area."
