Local resident Peter Bird has captured footage on his mobile phone after seeing a group of baby rats running freely at in the town centre at night in Spalding.
They are not too big, but it has been enough to get the Lincolnshire town talking, with a flower bed in the market area being described as a ‘flat for rats’.
South Holland District Council said there have been no complaints about the problem, but have asked people to stop feeding the wildlife nearby, according to BBC Look North.
