Suggesting that players ‘minimise interaction’ with the mice, Neville added: ‘There may have been some feeding going on. 

‘We will keep doing pest control if we need to, but hopefully the pest control work that was done will have fixed the problem.’

Putintseva said she had lost sleep because of the rodents scurrying around, and also expressed frustration about being unable to open a window in her room. 

‘We need fresh air to breathe,’ she said.
