KentOnline are known for giving the Daily Mail a run for their money in terms of sensationalist reporting so was nice to see a pretty restrained piece this morning - of course there is no way of judging size etc but it does look a decent size.

Also, nice to see a young mum who didn't go into full-on 'won't someone save the children' mode like we often get, and who not only knew what it was (how many would have thought it was a poisonous snake?) but who actually wants it to come back to her garden.
