Snake Identification

Hi,

 

I saw a snake last night in Surbiton (West London) and I really want to know what it was. It moved across the road quite fast but in a sideways motion (like a sidewinder?), it then moved in 'normal' snake way along a wall.

 

I didn't have chance to take a photo but it was around 18 inches long quite slender (body about 1 inch diameter), colour was dark rusty brown but with white bands around 1 inch wide, spaced every 4 or 5 inches. Its head was quite small, not really any larger diameter than the body.

 

It came from the back of a Sainsbury's local store so may have been imported??

 

It really did look unusual.

 

Hopefully you can shed some light?

 

Thanks

 

Ian
