A poisonous snake has been found in a box of grapes in a factory in Northern Ireland.
During a quality check at Orchard County Foods in Craigavon, Co.Armagh a worker discovered the 10-inch suspected adder.
The grapes had been imported from Spain. Once the worker notified management the Ulster Society for the Protection of Animals was alerted and they came and took the reptile to the City Reptiles shop in Belfast.
Commenting on the discovery a spokesman for Orchard County foods said: "We would normally buy a large quantity of grapes throughout Europe.
"In the pre-production checks... it was identified a small snake was in the side of a box.
"The management were contacted and in turn they contacted the USPCA to remove the unwanted guest."
