THE abandoned BHS building in Stratford is not only an eyesore – it has a rat problem.
The empty building, which has been earmarked for a new 170-bedroom hotel, has its first, unwanted, guests.
The rodents were spotted in the courtyard of the store and reported to Stratford District Council, which confirmed to the Herald this week, following a site visit by officers, that the building has an infestation of rats.
