A COUPLE had a ssssshock when they went to fix their faulty tumble dryer and found a 4ft snake hiding behind it!
The Royal Python was found in the utility room of their Southport home. RSPCA officer David Hatton collected the snake, he said: “I’m not sure how he managed to get into the utility room but was probably attracted to the warmth of the dryer.”
The snake - believed to be an escaped pet - is now being cared for by the charity. If you find an animal in need of help, you should contact the RSPCA’s emergency hotline on 0300 1234 999.
