By Medway Messenger reporter

A homeowner had the fright of her life when she found a snake on her doorstep.

The reptile, which turned out to be a royal or ball python, was found slithering round on tiles at her front door of her home in Gillingham.

A picture of the snake was put on the Animals Lost and Found in Kent Facebook page in the hope its owner could be found.
