"xxxxx used as face mask on bus"

If you haven't seen the story yet, think for a moment what it might be, then check to see if you were right  ;D

(I liked the comment from the bus company spokesman at the end.)

Well it might work - I certainly wouldn't venture within 2 metres of it.
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.

I think I might be a bit worried the snake would give a slightly tighter squeeze and then you’d be in a spot of bother😂
