Fake snake sparks panic

Help

A woman called the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals after finding what she thought was a 5ft snake in her loft.

But further investigation by animal rescue officer Karen Hogg at the house in Aberdeen revealed that all was not quite what it seemed.

The snake was a green and black draft excluder.

Karen told BBC Radio 5 live Drive that the draft excluder did look like a real snake.
