Residents are hunting a person who erected a "shrine to a dead rat " in a city's " Jeremy Kyle " estate.

Locals were shocked after yellow "enviro-crime scene" tape appeared over a dead rodent in the middle of a street.

The troubled Page Hall estate in Sheffield is riddled with " monster-sized " vermin and has been dubbed a "rodents' playground".

A woman who lives in Popple Street was incensed by the creation which saw somebody put yellow "enviro-crime scene" tape over the rat.

She told Yorkshire Live : "Someone has a sick sense of humour in Page Hall…this is a shrine to a dead rat."

The shrine is thought to have appeared on the street on Saturday night and has since been removed.

Page Hall has been described in the past as a "rodents' playground", with the furry pests described by some residents as "monster-sized".

A Freedom of Information request submitted by YorkshireLive found that in 2019, Popple Street was Sheffield's most rat-infested street, with the Page Hall area as a whole flagged as a hotspot for rodents.

Exterminators were called out to the street a whopping 157 times over the course of the year, with other nearby roads such as Robey Street, Lloyd Street and Wade Street also receiving a similarly high number of visits.

More recently, as well as rat-infested and litter-strewn streets, residents in Page Hall have been frustrated by groups in the area flouting the rules on social gatherings.

Groups of more than six have been seen congregating in the area and residents fear it could cause coronavirus to spread.
