Snake causes traffic delays in Birmingham

A five-foot snake caused tailbacks on a busy Birmingham commuter route on Thursday morning.

Believed to be a python, the snake was spotted on the city-bound carriageway of the A38(M) Aston Expressway near to Dartmouth Circus at 9am.

One lane was temporarily closed while the slithering creature was caught and safely removed from the highway by officers from the Central Motorway Police Group.

They are now trying to find out how the roving reptile got there.
