Nottingham Lidl:

Costa Rica tree frog found among bananas

In a box of bananas at a Lidl in Nottingham, a tree frog from Costa Rica has been found. It was discovered more than 8,500 km away from its rainforest home by staff at the Netherfield branch on Sunday.

Workers, who named it Lloyd, told the RSPCA it was sitting on top of the bananas as they unloaded the fruit on to the shelves. Lloyd is now in the care of a vet who specialises in exotic animals. RSPCA officer Hayley Day said the supermarket staff "seemed quite taken with him".

She added: "He must have also had quite the shock when he emerged in a Nottinghamshire supermarket considering he's used to more tropical climates usually."
