An issue with rats at a coastal car park has been resolved.

In September last year, North Norfolk District Council was dealing with rats at Overstrand beach car park off Pauls Lane.

The council said that rats were being attracted from the nearby cliff to the car park where the council hosts concessions and provides public bins.

A council spokesman said that since then, additional arrangements for bin collections had been made and an agreement had been reached with the concessions to resolve the issue.

The spokesman said they had not received any further complaints about rats at the area, but they would continue to monitor the site.
