Fed-up mum can feel and hear rats moving around her house when she’s bathing kids
A mum claims she can feel and hear rats moving around her home when she’s bathing her children.
Kelly Davison says the rat infestation at her Cornwall Housing property is so bad it has left her and the family physically sick and often unable to use their bathroom,
She claims despite countless calls to Cornwall Housing, the problem has yet to be fixed and that she can hear and feel rats under the bath whilst bathing the children, reports Cornwall Live.
Kelly said: “My children and I have to live with rats and Cornwall Housing doesn’t seem to care.
“The smell is unbearable and making my children and I poorly. They are under the bath.
“When I bath the children you can hear and feel them under the bath.
“They are behind the toilet and sink which is boxed in. I’ve lodged two formal complaints with housing and called hundreds of times but they (Cornwall Housing) are not interested and do absolutely nothing to help.”
Self-employed Kelly went onto describe how the only action taken so far was the use of rat poison which has killed some of the infestation but left behind a horrendous stench emanating from the dead carcasses that haven’t been removed.
“We’ve been here two years and the problem still isn’t solved. Someone came and put the rat poison down but they haven’t been back since and the smell is worse than ever.
“The smell just lingers and every morning makes us sick. It’s disgusting, rotting like faeces. Thank goodness I have the best childminder. I can take the children to hers for baths and we have a caravan for toilet use.
“I’ve already bought a new bathroom suite, I just need them to take it all apart and find out how they’re coming in. I don’t care how pretty a new bathroom is, I just want one that functions.
“I’m constantly being fobbed off and we’re so desperate for this to get sorted.”
