Lizard-in-broccoli taken as pet

The BBC Shropshire pages win Headline of the Day by acclamation.

And the story begins:

A four-inch lizard found in some broccoli from a supermarket has now become a family pet.

Paula Walsh and her partner Jez Allen, of Meole Brace, near Shrewsbury, found Tenko the gecko inside the vegetables from Tesco.

The family said they had become very attached to him after getting over the initial shock.

There will be an inquiry at the Shropshire Star. How were they scooped on this one?

Later. Now they have it.
