Rats drive a family of four from their home

A FAMILY, including three children, have been forced to move  out of their flat next to the former Hotel Le Carterets due to an infestation of rats.

A chalet at Carteret Mews next to the former Hotel de Carteret Castel has been infested by rats since the hotel was demolished.

A FAMILY, including three children, have been forced to move  out of their flat next to the former Hotel Le Carterets due to an infestation of rats.

The mother-of-three, who asked not to be named, was living in Carteret Mews, next to the former hotel which has been demolished to make way for housing.

‘We woke up yesterday morning and found holes along the wall,’ she said.

‘We couldn’t stay there and went to a friend’s last night. We have a hotel booked for tonight.'

Other Carteret Mews residents believe rats have got into the walls and roofs of the block of flats.

'Rats drive'...?!

Good god, is there anyone over here who doesn't have a car?

Talk about rat race.

Too right, next we'll be seeing numerous examples of rat running through country lanes :-)

The Castel parish should see this as an opportunity and twin forthwith with the town of Hamelin in Germany

What made you connect a story on rats with a Chinese restaurant?

As A.J. intimated in post no 1 they must have driven up using the Fort Road rat run

They have heard about Guernseys finances, and are leaving the sinking ship before the banks do.
