Two large rats have been filmed crawling across a fresh pastry in a Sainsbury's supermarket.

The rodents were filmed by videographer Anthony Mitson at the supermarket on Essex Road, Islington, North London.

In the footage, they can be seen running across an uncovered basket containing a croissant before scampering down the back of the stand.

The camera then pans down and to the right down a seemingly empty supermarket aisle.

Anthony posted the footage to his Instagram story alongside the caption "Sort it out Sainsbury's" and a vomiting emoji – and since it was posted, it has sparked a reaction from disgusted viewers.

One person said: "This is not a good look for Sainsbury's at all."

Another meanwhile added: "Nah that's me done with supermarket bakeries."

And a third said: "This video is a perfect example of why supermarkets need to stop selling pastry out in the open like this. It's not just the rats it's the flies too."

"We are taking immediate action to clean our Essex Road store and pest control have been called.

"We apologise to our customers who can be reassured we will do everything we can to ensure the problem is fixed as soon as possible.”

Back in 2019, a gran of three filmed a rat running across the floor of a Tesco.

Danielle Westbrook told the Mirror she "let out an almighty scream" and said the sighting made her feel "sick to her stomach".

At the time, Tesco said the rat entered the store in Gorton, Greater Manchester, from a nearby building site, adding that they had brought in pest control experts to make sure there were no further traces of rat activity.
