Rare albino corn snake found slithering up the motorway in Hampshire

Motorway workers got the shock of their lives when they saw a rare albino snake slithering up the highway.

The exotic-looking serpent was found at the side of the M3 in Hampshire by workers carrying out routine road maintenance.

Staff at EM Highway Services were stumped as to how the colourful corn snake, usually found in Texas and North America, ended up at junction 13 of the M3, in Eastleigh..

However, it was later discovered to be a non-venomous household pet that had escaped.

Ricky Taylor, environmental manager for EM Highway Services, said: ‘Operatives were performing routine maintenance when they noticed some movement on the verge.
