Customers of popular fast food chain McDonald’s were left shocked and horrified as they spotted around seven rats climbing in and out of bin around the restaurant.
A customer was sat in their vehicle in the car park when they spotted the sight as the branch in Holderness Road, Hull, seemed to have a rat infestation around the bins, which are located very close to the restaurant.
The customer quickly pulled out his phone to take a photo and allegedly witnessed the incident at around 6pm on March 12, reports the Mirror.

They also claimed that shortly afterwards, a member of staff came out of the restaurant and changed the rat-infested bin without wearing any PPE.
The customer said: "I am aware that where there are fast food places and where there is food waste, there will be vermin, but this is something else. This isn't good vermin control when you can witness this in broad daylight.”
The photo was shared on Facebook where a member of the public wrote: "Feel free to share before someone gets seriously unwell!!! Rat for tea anyone?! Well to be precise 7 rats!! Talk about vermin control?!
"After seeing this, I will NOT be using McDonald's on Holderness Road. A member of staff went and changed the bin bag without any PPE on and returned into the restaurant.”
Another added: "This is why I stopped eating McDonald's."
One more commented: "That's disgusting the need to get this sorted asap."
Vermin problems have plagued multiple McDonald's restaurants in recent months. In January, a woman used to never use the chain again after filming a rat on a table in a McDonald's in Tilbury, Essex.
In November, a man counted eight rats scurrying under cars at the McDonald's drive-thru in Willerby, Hull.
He compared the worrying sight to "a scene in Ratatouille", with the rodents "running under cars" and "leaping over rat traps”.
A McDonald's spokesperson said: "We take cleanliness and hygiene very seriously. Pest control experts recently carried out a routine inspection of the site and confirmed there has been no evidence of pest-related activity in the restaurant.
"We are working with the landlords to proactively manage any potential challenges arising from the nearby railway area. The restaurant itself has not been impacted."
The fast food chain added the team carry out at least three litter patrols in the surrounding area every day.
