Wallaby filmed in woman's garden


A wallaby has been filmed hopping around a garden in Dorset by a "shocked" woman.

Jan Cooper said she was having a coffee when she spotted the marsupial at her home in Blue Waters Drive, Lyme Regis, just after 0700 BST.

She called the RSPCA but the wallaby escaped over her fence.

It is unclear where the animal came from but the RSPCA said a number of them live wild in the UK.

The charity told people not to approach the animal.
