Rats rummaging in rubbish left by the side of the foot path

Reported via desktop in the Bench & public space damage category anonymously at 11:42, Saturday 20 February 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2559061.

This rubbish has been by the side of the footpath for over 2 weeks. Rats are rummaging for food. It is both an eyesore & much more importantly a public health issue.

  • I reported this health hazard a week ago. This rubbish has been lying next to a public footpath for 3 weeks. It is a public health risk, not only for the general public but also for the Council operatives who will, eventually, have to remove it.
