  • Kayaker spots 18-foot python floating down the canal



    A canoeist got the shit scared out of him this week when he paddled past a massive Burmese python in the Grand Union Canal in Aylestone, Leicestershire.

    Sadly the snake was dead, the victim of another irresponsible owner or some other type of all round bad egg.

    "As I passed under a bridge on the stretch at Aylestone I saw a long slim shape just under the water" Kayaker Sebastian Bishop explained.

    "I went to investigate and prodded it with my paddle. I lifted part of it up and was shocked to see it was a snake."

    Sebastian guesstimates that the serpent was a good 18-foot long, which is quite possible for an albino Burmese python.

    Yes, it looked awful. Feel very badly for those that have died, been injured or have simply lost their home and possessions in this fire.

    I know, people would be sick of it by then I think. We'll have to see how it plays out. She could hang on for the full term with the DUP support, but

    That's always been the problem, but she's on a proper power trip. It was always going to be a bit of a mess, but her staying is going to make it worse.
