Giant rats the ‘size of cats’ were found living on a south London housing estate.
Pest controller Lord Dean Burr made the shocking discovery when during an inspection of an estate in Tooting.
Lord Burr, 36, the self-proclaimed “People’s Lord” of Wimbledon, told the Daily Star were about 2ft in length.
He said the supersize rodents could have grown so big by feeding off smaller rats.
Dean added that they are the biggest vermin he had seen since setting up his rat catching company 15 years ago. He told the newspaper: “Rats will eat mice and they will eat each other as and when they die.
“So it’s possible that these rats got so big by attacking and eating smaller rats.
“Getting six this big in one swoop is unheard of. I reckon we got the majority of the family.
