MOUSE PARTOL AT THE METROPOLITAN
It seems that certain members of London’s finest have become somewhat slobbish in their attitude to work, to say the least. But when pest control were called into the weapon’s and technology off of the Metropolitan police in Kennington to deal with a mice problem they were astonished to find a whole family of the pesky rodents nesting in a pile of documents on an officer’s desk.
In a report published by the Met in an attempt to reinforce the policy under which desks should be cleared at the end of each day so cleaners can do their jobs it says: 'Employees came across a number of mice at a police building... Action was taken to remove the mice from the premises and there have not been any sighting of mice since.'
A Met spokeswoman “The 'paperwork home' set up on one desk by mice consisted of 'paperwork that did not relate to operational police matters... Some of the desks were so messy it was a wonder anyone could find anything,' said one officer... It got to the stage where mice droppings were found on desks and that's when everyone thought 'it's time to do something about our desks... That's when one guy found a mouse nest in his paperwork. It's fair to say he was a little embarrassed.'
It seems that Dutch windmills are no longer alone in their rodent problems
