This is an unfortunate incident.
To quote the newspaper article, pythons are "generally defensive by nature and usually feed on small creatures like birds or rodents (especially rats). They tend not to attack humans, unless they feel threatened".
This is how a local python species (Reticulated Python) looks like. Call 999 the next time you feel threatened by one. Provide the right details (name of the snake) so that the police officers can bring along the appropriate tools.
