UK government spends £10,000 on dead snake

275x250.jpg The UK Foreign Office has spent £10,000 to have a giant 120-year-old dead snake re-stuffed.

Measuring 20ft long and known as "Albert" the snake - which hangs in a Foreign Office library - is said to be regarded as a departmental asset.

The odd spending was revealed after a Freedom of Information (FOI) request from political blog Guido Fawkes.

A spokesman for the Foreign Office reportedly said of the spending: "It is quite a bit of money, but he is a very big snake."
