Devon woman finds Caribbean lizard in bananas

A woman in Devon says she was left shocked after finding a lizard in a bunch of bananas

Gayle Thorne was unpacking the fruit from a shipment that had arrived at Riverford Organic Farm at Buckfastleigh when she made the discovery.

It's thought the stowaway could have travelled 7000 miles from its home in the Caribbean.

The tiny lizard is now being cared for at Paignton zoo where it'll spend six months in quarantine before being released into the Tropical House.
