Editor's comment: Stop rowing and tackle the rats
WE not only have what appears to be a serious rat problem in St Philip's, we also have an escalating war of words.
And whilst it is easy to understand the frustration of all those companies involved it is achieving nothing.
For no amount of blame and counter blame is going to solve the problem.
However the one thing all sides appear to agree about is that there is a rat problem.

This is surely not a commercial issue. But rather an environmental one.
It has gone beyond the point of one company blaming another..
The rats are not going to disappear without intervention by the city's environmental health officers.
They are the experts and after all if the city's fruit and vegetable wholesale business has a rat problem then that is a concern for us all.
And it is exactly the sort of thing that environmental officers should be tackling.
They should be able to determine where the rats are coming from and the best way of getting rid of them.
Surely this issue has to be seen as more significant than a row between a handful of neighbouring companies. It is a genuine matter of health and safety and it needs to be sorted out.
