A ‘grass’ in the UK is a snitch.

The word grass is British slang for a police informer and dates back to the 1930s. Is apparently a shortened form of the slang term grasshopper, meaning the same thing. Grasshopper itself is rhyming slang (where words rhyme with a hidden meaning) for either copper (police officer) or shopper, one who shops (sells) information to the police.
