There was a time in the late 80s when those of us working the graveyard shift at the Daily Mirror could look down on Fetter Lane after about 2am to see whopping great rats raiding the bins. Dozens of them appeared from the foundations of a nearby building site. Night News Desk never concerned as it was in the days before the 'Super Rat' frenzy.

I also recall my father singing a wartime song about 'Rats, rats, big as pussy cats, in the Quartermaster's Stores'. No mention of any outcry about that either.

To be fair, Radio Five Live were suggesting the false perspective theory, one of the benefits of having ex-tabloid man Tony Livesey on their team.
