RSPCA sees rise in snakes and reptiles being abandoned

Over the past five years the number of abandoned snakes collected by the RSPCA has increased by more than 20% nationally.

The charity believes people are buying snakes and other reptiles without proper knowledge of how to look after them.

A pet shop in Havant, Hampshire, said it recently found snakes dumped outside its store.
