Ruth McGrath, pictured with a lizard, was among the 800 shoppers who visited the RepTylers stall in Montague Street.

Among the animals on show were furless guinea pigs, Pandora the baby albino python, a bullfrog and Charlotte the tarantula.

Town centre manager Sharon Clarke said: “Some children don’t like shopping but hopefully this will encourage them to come back into town and get excited.”
