Brown snake/worm

Observed: 23rd September 2013 By: gmc57
Brown snake/worm
About 15cm long and quite small

Spotted this during a walk in the lake district. Shot a short and rather blurry video to show how it moved.
I'm not at all sure what it is as the only British snakes/worms I know of are grass snake, adder and slow worm, and it doesn't seem to look like pictures of these. ID info from the iSpot community would be very welcome.

Slow Worm

Thanks all - the other observations make it very clear that this is what it was. I thought that because it moved so much like a snake, that it might be a snake, but obviously not. :)

Actually a legless lizard

Actually a legless lizard rather than a worm or snake
