Two of the UK's only venomous snakes have been spotted next to a footpath in Dumfries and Galloway.
The adders were pictured on a nature trail near to Gatehouse of Fleet.
Their poison is generally of little danger to humans, although they have been known to bite dogs, often when they are trodden on.
The snakes normally have black/brown zigzag patterns along their backs and a V-shaped marking on the back of the head, growing up to 65cm long.
Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service are warning people of the dangers of swimming in rivers, ponds, or lakes during the summer.Read the full story ›
