Giant Rat 'Bigger Than A Dog' Caught Near Playground (Real or hoax?)

A gas engineer has told how he came across a rat bigger than his dog as he worked at a block of flats.

Tony Smith, 46, spotted the dead rodent in a bush near a children's playground while working close to Hackney Downs in London.

He believes it weighs more than 25lb - and is "about 4ft" long including its tail, although this would easily put it on a par with the largest known rat species in the world.

"This is the largest rat I've ever seen in my entire life," he said.

He took a photograph of his friend James Green, an electrician, holding up the supersize rat to the camera.

Mr Smith added: "I've got a cat and a Jack Russell and it was bigger than both of those."

He said bins are often left open near the estate where he has been working so "these little fellas have a pretty good diet".
