Police have plucked two huge snakes from a bush after the creatures went on the loose close to a children's playground.
People living nearby gathered round to watch police use a litter picker and a brown paper bag to capture the boa constrictors which can measure up to 8 feet in length.
The snakes were spotted by people living close to Pashet Park in east London. When police turned up they confirmed:
According to the Newham Recorder, PC Simon Furia bravely stepped in to stop the snakes disappearing from sight. They were then taken to a pet shop for safe keeping. No one was injured.
Boa constrictors usually feast on birds and kill prey by squeezing it to death.
