Billy the boa constrictor pulled from Gainsborough gas fire

An 8ft (2.4m) long snake got itself into trouble after curling up inside a gas fire and getting trapped.

Billy the boa constrictor was roaming around its owner's living room in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, when it found its way into the heater.

Firefighters had to be called to rescue the pet, who was agitated but not hurt.
