Where Is Samuel L Jackson when you need him?
A snake was found hidden on a plane in a takeaway box during a flight to Luton last night.
In scenes slightly less dramatic than the 2006 cult classic film Snakes on a Plane, stunned passengers were left delayed when police intercepted an easyJet flight from Israel after reports of a sneaky stowaway aboard the plane.
