'My Star Wars suit saved me from deadly snakebite'

An Australian man dressed in a Star Wars costume says that his armour saved him from a venomous snakebite.

Scott Loxley is walking around Australia dressed as a desert stormtrooper (or sandtrooper) from George Lucas's Star Wars films to raise money for charity.

The 47-year-old claimed he was attacked by a King Brown (or Mulga) snake near Yalboroo in the northern area of the Australian state of Queensland.
