    A man on a London-bound plane caused panic among fellow passengers at the end of last month, when he released his pet snake from his luggage mid-flight.

    Adam Gubbay, from Stoke Newington, bought a baby corn snake on holiday in Israel, and managed to get the pet through airport security in Tel Aviv.

    Mid-way through the flight, Mr Gubbay released the reptile, named Milky, to give it a drink of water, sending fellow passengers into a panic for their safety.

    "I had advised the passenger sitting next to me on my left that I was about to feed my snake and that he shouldn't be alarmed and that if it was ok, " said Mr Gubbay.

    "He said to proceed, and as I did the female passenger to his left got up and started screaming."

    Looking for attention - otherwise he'd have left the snake in the overhead. I'd say he got it...
