She was on her way to pick up a takeaway curry and needed to cross a patch of grass. At Morriston hospital, where she availed treatment, they had not quite seen any patient with a python bite and needed to take advice from a reptile and venom unit in London.

"Who would think you would get attacked by a python in Swansea? I would have been scared out of my life if I had seen it." After the attack, Sue began to shake uncontrollably and her face swelled up. She suffered bites on both her legs.

A spokesman for the Reptile Centre in Cardiff said: "It is possible she had an allergic reaction. Any snake may bite if it is frightened but the bite alone will not kill you."

Recounting the horror, Sue said, "It's just bizarre - when you are walking around you don't think there is going to be a python attacking you. If we had been told by police there was a snake on the loose I wouldn't have walked through the grass. I'm just lucky the snake didn't constrict me as well."
