A man has been sent running in panic after finding a snake in his toilet while his home was being renovated.

The 4ft rat snake was discovered at his home in Basildon, Essex, after the man went to investigate a noise, reported Sky News.

A relative helped contain the snake, later taken by the RSPCA, which is giving it specialist care.

RSPCA animal collection officer Joe White said: “Rat snakes are kept as pets fairly regularly in this country so I’m sure he’s an escaped pet.”
