A Boa constrictor is on the loose in Boston.

The snake was reported missing last night (Wednesday, November 28) after it escaped a home on Union Street.

Members of the public are advised to stay away from the snake.

The Boa constrictor is not venomous, but should not be approached. It is likely to find somewhere warm, so could be in an area such as a garden shed.

It has white on its tail, with grey, black and brown spots.

Police officers are currently searching for the reptile.

If anyone sees what they think is a snake in the area, call 999 quoting Incident 361 of November 28.
