A crocodile has 'blown' up a storm in Plymouth.

Police and wildlife experts armed with snares, nets and riot shields were called to a house in the city this morning.

Dartmoor Zoo was also alerted after a mum reported seeing a green reptile outside her kitchen window.

However, it turned out the creature was an inflatable toy.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police tweeted: "Caller has bravely approached the beast. Turns out it's an inflatable toy crocodile. Experts from Dartmoor Zoo stood down. #relieved."
