A kayaker got a fright when he came face-to-face with a 3ft-long barred grass snake swimming beside his boat.

Photographer Andy Hiscock, 57, was shocked to see the reptile as he paddled down Beaulieu River in the New Forest, Hants - and it even tried to warn him off with a bite.

He came across the remarkable sight while observing wildlife on the river with his friend, initially believing it to be a floating piece of wood or a twig from a tree.
