A rare blue lobster has been saved from the cook pot after a Swansea fishmonger discovered it was a one in two million specimen.

Adrian Coakley-Greene, 70, has named the crustacean Chelsea because it is the same colour blue as the Premier League football team.

It was caught off North Berwick in Scotland, and sent to Mr Coakley-Greene who supplies restaurants with seafood.

He wants to donate the lobster to an aquarium or return it to the sea.

How rare are bright blue lobsters ?
