The best local news photo of 2013? There’s a live rat in my toilet what am I gonna do?
THIS is a new contender for the greatest local news photo of all time. The picture illustrates the story of Margaret Woods, 59, whose home in Sutton has an unwelcome visitor. A rat she’s named Roland lives down the toilet. As she says:
“Thursday morning at quarter-to-one I went to the loo and I could hear scratching – I jumped up and thought – this time I’m going to watch. I flushed the toilet straight away and went back into the toilet leaving the light on. It was rearing its ugly head. In March I gave [Thames Water] two weeks to sort it out. We kept hearing scratching and we’d put the lid down. We are petrified to go to the toilet. We flush the toilet and run the tap to be able to go to the toilet.”
Anyhow, great photo. But is it as good as this one?
