Even though neither of the two breeds of rat presently living in the British Isles originate from these shores, they've clearly thrived since they got here. The brown rat is especially widespread while the ship (black) rat isn't so much so these days. Both breeds escaped from Asia and got to the UK as stowaways on boats.
