They’re baaaack…

The Pied Piper might be needed again in Hamelin – because the rats are back. An abandoned allotment site on the edge of the German town has become a haven for rats, reports the BBC.

According to legend, in 1284 Hamelin – called Hameln in Germany – was infested with rats but a Pied Piper lured them out of town by playing a pipe.

Next year the town plans to mark the 725th anniversary of the Pied Piper conquering the plague, with various events including a huge children’s procession.
