The owner of a 5ft (1.5m) long lizard who was the subject of a police appeal after he went missing has spoken about her pet's escape.

Archie's picture made the news earlier this week after he disappeared from a Swansea garden after being let out of the house for exercise.

He was later found safe and well.

Archie's owners were on holiday at the time of his disappearance and had to abandon their trip.

Colette Pawan told BBC Radio Wales' Nelli Bird what happened.
