10 baby rats were found in a rats nest made of shredded plastic and paper at Clementi Hawker centre.
The nest was discovered last Tuesday on top of an exhaust pipe located above one of the stalls there.
The stall owner of the stall below the nest said that he disposed of the rats immediately and cleared the rats nest.
The chairman of the Clementi Centre Market Hawker’s Association explained that the hawker centre there started to have a rat problem only after another nearby coffee shop went under renovations last month.
Mr Patrick Sze, 56, also explained that the grassy patch behind the hawker centre also had rat burrows and the hawker association is currently working with NEA and West Coast town council to deal with the issue.
