A NELSON family were forced to leave their home for a week because of fears over rats.

Mr Mahboob Ahmed told a meeting of Pendle Council’s Nelson Committee that he and his family were terrified of the “giant” rats living on Every Street.

He said: “There are really big rats going in to a number of properties on the street. My kids were so scared that we had to vacate our house for a week.”

Mr Ahmed has called on the Chief Executive of Pendle Council, Stephen Barnes, to look in to the issue.

He told members of the committee that he and other residents living in Every Street were putting together a petition to present to Mr Barnes.
