Laura explained that she had to deal with the snake in her home before the RSPCA officers were able to get to her.
In her words: ‘I woke up at half-past five in the morning to go to the toilet, and it was just there. It scared the hell out of me, I nearly sat on the thing. Its head was just resting on the seat.
‘I shut the toilet door and thought, have I really seen that, so I double-checked if it was real – but I really thought I was hallucinating.
‘I went around my mate Sarah’s house at half five in the morning in my dressing gown and trainers. She was so confused she asked if I’d been drinking.’
She added that she had to call a friend to assist her get rid of the animal.
She added: ”My mate’s brother, Dan, is really interested in spiders and snakes and stuff so I called him and he got his friend who lived twenty minutes away, Steve, to come and get it out.
‘It was actually stuck in my toilet, because it was so fat in the middle that it couldn’t get out and couldn’t get back.
‘We couldn’t actually get it out, so we had to put washing up liquid down the toilet and then flush it to help get it out.
‘Steve and Dan think that someone might have let it out after keeping it as a pet and deciding they didn’t want it, and it had got into the sewer somehow.
‘I still can’t get my head around it, I really can’t.’
