Residents coaxed it out and then used a grabber stick and a storage box to bundle it safely away.

The RSPCA were called to the scene on Wednesday afternoon and took the snake away.

It is believed the animal was a corn snake, a North American species that constricts its small prey to death but is harmless to humans.
