    A dangerous snake, which reportedly could prey on dogs, cats and even humans, disappeared from its cage in the early hours of the morning of 30 June.

    Cambridge police reported that officers had attended the area of Lovell Rd Cambridge responding to reports of a three-metre (9 foot) snake seen in the neighbourhood. The reticulated python that comes from Southeast Asia has been reportedly kept as a pet in Kings Hedges, not far from Cambridge University's famous colleges. According to the Daily Star, the python weighs about 50 kilogrammes. 

    ​Pythons are known to be the excellent swimmers and the longest snakes in the world.
