"The external part of the property had been a significant problem."

Officers from the council's private sector enforcement team discharged a public health act warrant on the property, which was infested with rats.

When officers arrived, they found that the inside of the property, on Alfreton Road, Underwood was in an 'appalling' condition with a large amount of animal waste.

The warrant was granted last week by the District Judge at Mansfield Court along with a second address.
