Helping to catch an eight foot boa constrictor is all in a day’s work for Batley’s Neighbourhood Policing Team.

Officers were called to Nethercroft on Thursday after a resident found the snake basking in the sun.

It had escaped from its owner’s home nearby and settled on a stone wall.

The officers trapped the snake in a box before finding a second escaped snake.

Both were reunited with their owner and are safely back in their tank.

Specialist RSPCA officers have visited the home to make the tank more secure and give the snakes a health check.
