Shocking video shows rodent running into the crisp display in Tesco, leaving customer 'feeling sick'

A video apparently showing a rodent squirming in a Tesco crisp display has left a customer saying they are ‘feeling sick’.

The shocking clip was captured last week at Birmingham’s New Street Station.

The video shows the animal sitting on the side of a plastic crispy plank, hesitating for a moment before running into the plank.

The rodent then disappears from view before reappearing in another video clip.

According to those who saw the incident, the little creature ran across the floor of the store

A customer said the animal chewed through packets of crisps and left crumbs on the floor

The furry creature takes cover again under the shelves before darting across the shop floor to the refrigerated section.

A commuter who saw the rodent claimed it was a rat and that it chewed through packets of crisps and left crumbs on the floor.

Speaking of the incident, they said: ‘I felt sick going into that Tesco every day.

“I saw the rats in the chips making holes in them.

“They must have been there for a while, as there is always a trail through the chips from unopened chip bags that are never cleaned.

According to a Tesco spokesperson, employees have not been able to find any traces of rats in the store

“I was waiting for the Tesco to open, the store was supposed to open at seven, but I was taking the rat in at a quarter past, while the store was still closed.”

A Tesco spokesperson said: ‘We take food hygiene very seriously and maintain strict hygiene standards in all our stores.

“Since we were made aware of this video, we have closely monitored every possible pest activity and have not found any evidence of pests in our store.”
