A MAN had to have surgery to re­move an EEL from his arse.

The slip­pery crea­ture showed up on an X-Ray when the red-faced guy turned up at A&E.

A hospi­tal source said: “The eel was the size of a sprig of as­para­gus. We have come across peo­ple with strange ob­jects stuck where they shouldn’t be be­fore but an eel has to be a first.”

The man’s iden­tity has not been re­vealed and it’s not known how the eel ended up in his bum in Auck­land, New Zealand.

A hospi­tal spokesman said: “We can con­firm an adult male came here with an eel inside him. No fur­ther com­ment will be made out of re­spect for the pa­tient’s pri­vacy.”

In 2008 a Sh­effield vicar claimed a potato got stuck up his bum af­ter he fell on to the veg­etable while hang­ing cur­tains.
