A YOUNG mother told of her horror after her baby daughter was mauled in her cot by a foot-long rat.
She was stunned to find the little girl, who has a twin sister Lily, covered in blood with deep bite marks on her hand.
Her husband Michael, 41, later spotted the “massive” rodent scurrying around their flat in Camden, north London.
He eventually chased it out with a broom after filming the creature on his mobile phone.
Mrs Molyneux said: “I heard her crying through the monitor. I went in because I didn’t want her to wake her twin up and she was shaking.
“I walked her out of the bedroom, holding her over my left shoulder, sat her down on the floor on the kitchen and as I started to strip her I saw all the blood. I started screaming ‘she’s bleeding, she’s bleeding’.
