Wetherspoons in Trowbridge, Wiltshire, was forced to close temporarily when a customer complained a rat ran up his trouser leg and pinched a chip from his hand. The pest control expert who captured said rat immediately handed it over to police officers, who escorted the rodent to a refugee centre at Heathrow Airport. Naturally Wetherspoons took the ratatouille starter off the menu. And quite right too! Just a moment, I was under the impression rats traditionally jump from the sinking ship known as Great Britain?
