A 24 year old backpacker from Edinburgh, Daniela Liverani, found an unwelcome hitchhiker in her nose! The sneaky tagalong? A 3 inch leech!

After a trip to South East Asia, Daniela had been suffering from nosebleeds for weeks, but believed they were caused by a burst blood vessel after a motorbike accident.

However, Daniela realised last Thursday that the wriggling thing in her nose was alive! She went to A&E and doctors removed the leech.

Daniela believes she may have picked up the hitchhiker in Cambodia or Vietnam – unfortunately the leech did not survive his little adventure.
