Leeds now in desperate need of rat control
The ongoing strike by refuse collectors in Leeds means that the city is becoming more and more in need of rat control measures.
According to the Mirror.co.uk, bin bags on back streets have been left to rot and overflow, which has created a wealth of opportunities for the rodents.
A writer for the publication told of a recent trip to the Yorkshire city in which he spotted a young girl on a scooter have to swerve to avoid a pair of rats running between the piles of rubbish.
Many people in the city are reported to be angry at the current state of affairs.
The strike in Leeds has now been going on for about nine weeks. Dorretta Cocks, of the campaign for Weekly Waste Collections, told the Daily Express that rodent populations are "a major problem" in the UK.
She called on councils to collect bins every week to reduce the need for pest control in the country.
