Two women who opened the boot of their rental car to retrieve their luggage were greeted by a stowaway with a difference - a snake.

The women drove the rental car from Boston to Kennebunk in Maine, where they discovered the ball python.

The snake, which can grow up to 1.5m long, was turned over to the Maine Warden Service and was being transported to the Centre for Wildlife in York.
