Rat man banned from taking live animals on trains

A man who carried a rat on his shoulder as he ”caused misery” on the railway has been banned from taking live animals on trains.

 

Allan Page who carried a rat on his shoulder was banned from taking live animals on to trains

Allan Page who carried a rat on his shoulder was banned from taking live animals on to trains:

Known locally as ”rat man”, Allan Page, 39, was jailed for two years after pleading guilty to a racially aggravated public order offence against a member of rail staff at Peterborough station, and to two counts of witness intimidation.

He was also handed a five-year anti-social behaviour order at Luton Crown Court, preventing him from carrying live animals on any train or at any station.

Page, from Arlesey, Bedfordshire, was often seen travelling in and around the Arlesey, Peterborough and Biggleswade areas with his white pet rat, called Rizla.

Pc Chris Thompson-Chambers, of the BTP, said: ”With a white rat on his shoulder, Allan Page has become somewhat of a well-known local personality.

”The more important fact is that he has been responsible for committing a large number of offences on the railway that have caused misery to others.”
