First published in News

A SNAKE has been handed in to police after it was found on a North-East street.

A member of the public alerted officers after finding the reptile in the Cleveland Avenue area of Chester-le-Street.

Police are now appealing for anyone who knows who its owner is to get in touch.

A spokesman for Durham Constabulary said: “We believe it is possibly a corn snake but may be wrong.

“It has since been handed over to the RSPCA who will find it a temporary home.”

Anyone with information can call the force non-emergency number, 101, to help.
