A large grass snake has been rescued from a busy city road.
Derek Johnstone, of Snydale, told the Wakefield Express: "Last Wednesday morning I saw a large Grass Snake on the new Wakefield East Link Road.
"It looked like rope in the road as I approached, then saw it was moving.
"There were four cars behind me, at least one ran over it. I stopped, went back and a concrete mixer driver had also stopped.
"Together we put it into a bucket and took it well clear of the road into the woods.
"I estimate it was 2 metres in length. I do hope it will survive."
