Police hunt for five foot python
Police were today on the lookout for a five foot python which escaped in a city.
The snake disappeared from a property in Cambridge early on Wednesday and police said anyone who spotted it should alert them.
A spokeswoman said the snake was a brown royal python which was privately owned.
"We had a report yesterday that a five foot long python had escaped in Cambridge," said the spokeswoman.
"It was described as brown in colour and the owner described it as friendly.
"We contacted the RSPCA and the local authority and if anyone sees it they should let us know."
