Poo-munching mussels to invade Britian

Poo-munching "alien" mussels capable of crawling up U-bends are set to invade Britain.

The warm winter the UK has experienced has made the perfect conditions for the molluscs - who are native to Eastern Europe - to breed.

It's feared they could block toilets and pipes in millions of UK homes, after Britain experienced the hottest winter for 350 years.

Faeces-eating quagga mussels - which are the size of a thumbnail - have survived in huge numbers and currently top the list of the ten most dangerous alien species in Britain.
