Dear Hackney Council. Witnessed a huge rat walking along the middle of the pavement at 1.30pm on 27th December. It turned around and bold as brass, disappeared down a roadside drain in Hertford Road, at the junction with Downham Road.
You want to report things like this direct to the environmental health department. That has never been a council function covered by FMS.
FMS would be an appropriate place to report a broken grid over a gulley, if that is how the rat managed to get down the gulley.
Unfortunately, the web site doesn't mention the council's enforcement role for rats, but only its chargeable services, but I imagine the addresses given will get you close to someone who deals with enforcement: http://www.hackney.gov.uk/ pest-control-rats.htm#.VoEIjZ5amMA
