NHS worker Rosalyn, of Dagenham, East London, said: “I put the rat trap down to catch mice. I know the glue on the pads is very strong.

“I just didn’t expect it would be strong enough to catch a snake. I was absolutely petrified, I hate snakes.”

An RSPCA spokesperson said: “The snake, which is a brown corn snake about two feet long, is being cared for by specialists.”
