Parents complain of rats on Nicolas Salmeron school playground

PARENTS with children at the Nicolas Salmeron High School in Almeria have complained that there are rats in the area near the school.

Just three metres away from the playground there is some wasteland, a plot of around 300m2 of which most belongs to the city hall, in the 500 Viviendas area, and parents claim that it has been abandoned for years, and there is a colony of rats living there.

The headmaster claims that they requested a car park for the school some three years ago so that the plot would be cleared and there would be more parking available. However, nothing was done.

Local residents would prefer to create a leisure area, but whatever the plans for the plot are, they want the rubbish and rats to be gone, as well as cutting down the trees, which rats climb up to enter apartments.

The headmaster also claims that not only is there rubbish on the plot, such as chairs, cartons, tins and bags, but there is also dog excrement and syringes have been found.
