A child and an employee at a pre-school in central Sweden have been bitten by adders within a few days of each other.

The attack on the employee at the Olsbackgården childcare centre in Gävle happened last week, with a child being bitten on Tuesday.

"They did not notice that they had been bitten, but they started to hurt, and the hospital said it was a snake bite," said the centre's principal, Ninna Parneborg, to Arbetarbladet.

The pre-school is situated next to a forest, and has had problems with snakes for several years. The grass there is currently uncut, meaning the snakes can move around without being spotted. The pre-school's janitor has now promised to ensure the grass is cut.
