The OAP was left with shocking injuries, including bloody claw marks on her neck and chin, and was discovered helpless in bed by her husband John, 85, at their home on Ringwood Road in Bingham.

The 76-year-old has brain damage and is sleeping downstairs in a hospital bed being cared for by John and a care team who come to the house to help.

John recalls hearing something “scratching” next to his feet but couldn’t see it because it was dark and knew it was a large rodent but brushed it aside.

Around 1:30 a.m. he noticed it again but fell asleep again and woke up just before 6 a.m. as usual.

John was shocked when he went downstairs to see Diana covered in blood in her bed and thought the rat had attacked her and called an ambulance, according to Nottinghamshire Live.

“I’ve never seen anything quite like the injuries… it was absolutely horrific,” he said.

“I went and knocked on the door of the young girl across the street since she’s always up early too, so she helped. They took Diana to Queen’s Medical Center and she returned Thursday evening.

“There were scratches on her face, her neck, her hands – it had tried to gnaw to the bone by the looks of it. There was blood everywhere.”

The next morning, the feral rodent fell into a trap set by John’s neighbor.

When the 85-year-old brought it onto the patio, it kept trying to bite him until a neighbor came and killed it with an air pistol.

“Due to her condition, my wife is unable to move,” John explained.

“Since then I’ve read that rats only ever attack young babies and bedridden people like my wife.

“She can’t feel pain so she wouldn’t have known much about what happened.

“I want people to know what can happen and be aware of it. I found out it nests inside the house a few days after it happened.”

Helen Speed, a care manager at Homestead East Notts and Melton Mowbray, who cares for the Kirks, said: “A couple of weeks ago another of our caregivers was in Bingham and heard a squeak – there was a rat in a client’s bin.

“I think it has to be an ongoing problem and I think people who live nearby need to be aware of that – especially if they’re at risk.”
