HUGE: Pest control expert Terry Walker snared the 19- inch beast
Terry Walker snared the 19- inch beast as the UK is swamped by over 200million of the disease-ridden rodents.
Terry, who has worked as a rat catcher for 20 years, said: “You would struggle to find a pest controller who has found a bigger one.
“It is the biggest I have ever caught.”

The monster – which dwarfs many cats – was discovered not far from Poole High Street in Dorset.
It was just yards from where former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp and his TV pundit son Jamie and pop star wife Louise have homes in the millionaires’ resort of Sandbanks.

He added: “It comes down to a lot of things including refuge at the back of buildings and people feeding birds.”
A Poole council spokesman said “People must store waste properly in bins with lids.”
