An Applegreen service station in West Dublin has temporarily closed after a hungry rat was seen running along one of its deli counters.

The store in Cherry Orchard says it's fallen well below its operating standards.

Footage has emerged of a rat climbing out of a loaf of bread, before scuttling over plastic cutlery and running behind a toaster.

It has been widely shared online:
