William Evans is a ten year old student and his mom shops at Tesco, where their slogan is Every Little Helps. William, from Hawkchurch, near Axminster, Devon, said, "I was making some toast and cut off a slice when I saw something that looked like a leaf.

So I took the wrapping off and found the lizard inside. It was about two to three inches long. It certainly put me off my toast." The store customer service department said it would be impossible for a lizard to get in one of their loaves because of the company's high hygiene standards. Marcus Evans, William's father, commented, "It was one of Axminster Tesco's baked in-store, multi-grain brown loaves. The lizard had not been cooked so it must have got into the packaging and died there. You could see the impression of its body in the bread so it must have been warm when he got in. The poor little lad was absolutely traumatised by it. He went to take a slice off for some toast, turned the loaf over and found the lizard stuck on the bottom."
