Here's the area, within the red ellipse.
It's hard to know where the rats hang out, but they retreat from the footpath into a couple of well-known little holes on the south side of the trail.
|Looking SW towards the Skatepark, note the wall to the left|
|The small hole in the red circle is one rat-run|
|Looking back NE towards Milton Lane, notice the door to the right|
|The small hole at the bottom (circled) - that's another rat-run.|
Clare has contacted Environmental Health at Mendip District Council. This is what she said:
"Today I encountered two rats on the footpath near Lovers Walk, Wells (near the Skateboard park). On Monday I passed three rats. I am informed that dealing with this issue is your responsibility. If this is so ...... now is the time for action. "---
Update: finally a picture and video of the rats.
