Is this a salad-mander? Electrician finds six-inch lizard crawling in supermarket bag of leaves as he prepares sandwich


Incredible: This lizard was lurking in the pack of 'wild' Italian rocket which Ian and Jane Lock bought from Morrisons

It was labelled ‘wild’ rocket salad from Italy.
But Ian Lock, 55, couldn’t believe his eyes when a live six-inch long lizard appeared amongst the leaves, crawling around inside.
The electrician said the sight of the creature in the bag he was about to use to make a sandwich made his ‘stomach turn over.’
He explained: ‘I shouted for my wife Jane to come and have a look. It was unbelievable. I had taken it out the fridge to make the sandwich and the lizard started moving around when it began to warm up in the kitchen.

Whoops: Morrisons apologised about the lizard incident and have offered a refund to the disgruntled shoppers

‘It was lucky that I never opened the packet. I was really shocked at the time and I still can’t quite believe it.’
Mrs Lock, 54, a school caterer, had bought the £1 twin pack of rocket salad from their local Morrisons supermarket at Killamarsh, Derbyshire, on Monday last week.
The family went through the first pack during the week and took out the second one containing the lizard on Saturday for the first time.
It had been on the side for several minutes when the lizard’s movement caught Mr Lock’s eye as he prepared the sandwich.
The packet stated the contents came from Italy and Mr Lock, a father-of-two, said customer services were also shocked when he phoned to tell them.
