Snake Identification



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?
