Holidaymaker's surprise after finding gecko in their luggage

A HOLIDAYMAKER was shocked to unpack and found they had brought home a surprising souvenir — a tiny gecko.

The little lizard had stowed away in the traveller’s luggage as they headed home from Barbados to Rotherham.

The RSPCA tweeted a photo of the Caribbean critter, saying: “Imagine taking a nap & waking up in #Rotherham."

The new arrival has now been passed on to a reptile specialist, the RSPCA said.
