This story seems a little suspect to me: mice generally try to avoid running inside a larger creature's mouth, and how would it force its way down the man's throat without triggering his gag reflex? The lack of names makes me even more skeptical.

I looked at The Manchester Evening News website and found this item (you may have to answer some survey questions to view it):

My bold. It says he swallowed it but he may well have inhaled it as he 'gasped' - a mouse is certainly small enough to swallow whole. So no forcing its way down his throat.
