A pensioner died three months after allegedly being bitten more than 50 times by a rat as she slept at a council-run care home.

Pamela Hudson, 75, was found covered in blood and with multiple wounds to her face and arms after apparently being bitten by the rodent at Glen Lodge care home in York.

Her family say she had "probably more than 50 bites" on her body after the incident on June 19.

"You could see she had been gnawed,” her daughter Jan Derry told The Sun.

“Her left elbow was ripped open by the rat’s teeth and there were dozens of teeth marks along her arm. She had bites all over both her hands, a couple on her chest and even on her nose."

“There were probably more than 50 bites. We think the rat was trapped in her bed with her and that is why it bit her so severely.”

Mrs Hudson was transferred to a different care home after her ordeal but died three months later.

Mrs Derry say they are still unsure whether their mother's death was directly related to the apparent attack but hit out at the council for failing to apologise.

"There was nothing the council could do to rectify it, but we have had no apology. That was the only thing they could do."

City of York Council told ITV News that it has still been "unable to determine the exact circumstances of how Mrs Hudson's injuries occurred".

Martin Farran, Director of Adult Social Care at City of York Council, said:We have worked closely with, and provided support to Mrs Hudson and her family throughout the investigation into this incident.

 It is with regret that, despite extensive efforts by professional experts, environmental health and independent inspectors, we have been unable to determine the exact circumstances of how Mrs Hudson's injuries occurred.

Our thoughts are with Mrs Hudson's family, who are understandably distressed by what has happened.
