Sss-surprise! Terrified teenager discovers huge SIX foot-long snake in her BATHROOM
Her speechless mother, Karen, then came to her rescue and called 999.
Craig Wallace, a detective based at Rochdale police station, overheard the control room call and offered to help as he has experience with keeping snakes.
He then raced to the family home in Littleborough, Rochdale, and captured the slithery beast in a pillow slip.
Following the dramatic rescue, Detective Wallace said he suspects the snake may be an escaped pet which got into the house during the recent warm weather.
He joked: "I wanted to keep it as a station pet, but no-one would sit near me."
While Mrs Marriott, 40, described the bizarre encounter as "like something out of a film".
She added: "I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Everybody needed a wee, but we couldn't go."
