I was on my way home from town on Saturday and as I was driving down Frampton Place I was absolutely horrified to see a very large rat on the pavement.

I have lived in Staniland South for more than five years and have never seen a rat on an urban street in broad daylight before.

I was very shocked to see it. Is it because our streets are getting dirtier? 
If that is the case, bring back the rat catcher and clean our streets more often.

I know they had a rat in Downing Street a couple of years ago and suggested getting a cat to sort out the problem, but we need more than a cat in Boston to sort this out.

Lets clean up our streets in Boston – no more rats.
