Snake terror.

A HORRIFIED young nurse was confronted with 143 snakes yesterday when she opened a hospital boiler room cupboard.

Staff came rushing as the screaming nurse, who has not been named, became hysterical with terror.

She only calmed down when she was told they were non-poisonous grass snakes.

Last night, snake expert Eric Pritchard, who was called to Dilke Hospital in Cinderford, Gloucestershire, said they were babies.

He added: "Warm conditions in the boiler room are perfect for them."

The snakes were released into a local forest.
