Nicole continued: "The mice are now running all over my bed and my couch. There’s droppings all over my bed and couch. "I don’t know what else to do with it anymore.

"My dad bought me a brand new couch and now the droppings are all over it and I’m going to have to throw it out. "When I’m lying in bed I can hear the mice scratching on the wall, it’s horrible. There’s holes all over the house, and now I don’t know what to do anymore." Nicole has also been left panicking about leaving the poison laying around while her young family members visit.

A spokesman for South Lanarkshire Council explained they had repeatedly tried to eliminate the rodents and are planning to fill up the huge holes in the walls. They said: "The council is aware of the issue with mice at Ms Caullay’s tenancy and appreciates the concern this is causing. "Our specialist contractor has attended on five occasions to attempt to remedy the situation, most recently on January 6. The bait laid to deal with rodent infestations is placed in a secure, tamper-proof box. "Follow-up work is also planned to fill any access holes, as soon as COVID restrictions allow, with the aim of preventing a recurrence. "A local housing officer is in regular contact with Ms Caullay to provide her with updates and support while the matter is resolved and to help her settle successfully into her new home. "This includes helping her to complete an application to replace contaminated or damaged items and arranging for a deep clean of the property when all remedial work is complete." 5 She says pest control have been out to set traps every week since November but to no avail Credit: Media Scotland 5 Nicole explained she cannot live in the conditions as they are taking a toll on her mental health Credit: Media Scotland
