A snake that was found at a Birmingham festival is looking for a new home.

The milk snake was spotted among a crowd of 5,000 attending the Moseley Folk Festival. There were fears it was poisonous and the park would have to be evacuated.

Police called in an expert from a nearby reptile shop who confirmed it did not pose a risk.

The snake is being cared for at Weird 'N' Wonderful in Birmingham, who say although it is three foot long now, it will eventually grow to double that size.
