Cannibal rats the size of cats have been found on a London housing estate.

Pest controller 'Lord' Dean Burr came across the beasts while carrying out an inspection in Tooting.

He told the Daily Star: "Rats will eat mice and they will eat each other as and when they die.

"So it’s possible that these rats got so big by attacking and eating smaller rats.

"Getting six this big in one swoop is unheard of. I reckon we got the majority of the family.

"They were big, a foot to two feet long – that’s the size of a cat."

The horrifying discovery comes just weeks after engineer Tony Smith, 46, spotted a similar rodent, which measured an astonishing four-feet long, while working at a block of flats.

He quickly snapped his friend James Green, 46, holding the giant furry mutant with an extended mechanical claw.

Whichever way you look at it, it’s still a big rat.

The rodent, which Smith says weighed upwards of 25lbs, was spotted lying in a bush next to a popular children’s playground. 

The rat, which was found dead, was discovered near where children play which backed onto a railway track near Hackney Downs, north London on Thursday

Tony said: “This is the largest rat I’ve ever seen in my entire life.”
