Smooth criminal: 5ft snake found hiding inside a Mini Cooper

The last thing you would want to find when looking for a safety release catch on a Mini Cooper is a five foot Boa constrictor, but that's exactly what happened to technician, Wayne Hunt in Oxford.

Wayne said: “We immediately called the RSPCA to collect the snake, since it didn’t belong to the customer and we had no idea who owned it. We also wanted to make sure we didn’t harm the reptile in removing it, as we’re more used to working on brakes than snakes!”

“The snake was dealt with properly and luckily it had done no damage to the car. The RSPCA told us that it looked thinner than it normally would, which could meant it had been living under the bonnet for a while. In all the years I have worked as a vehicle technician, I’ve never seen anything like it.”
