Police in Berlin are trying to find out how a 1.20-metre-long dead crocodile turned up on the banks of the Oberhavel in Spandau.

The crocodile spooked officers called to the scene, who initially assumed it was still alive and were preparing to try to catch it with a dog-catcher's lasso.

When the animal did not move, they carefully approached it and established it was dead – and loaded it into a body bag instead.

Efforts are being made to trace the animal's owner, as it is thought unlikely that it had been swimming around in the river.
