Can't find an exact picture anywhere on the Web. Looks like a Wall Lizard, but the markings don't look quite right. could be a regional variation?

Looks like it could be a Large Psammodromus (Lagartija colilarga / Psammodromus algirus) with a replacement tail.

Thanks Mick, never heard of one of those, but a cracking name! Never noticed the tail damage at the time. I took the picture from close range and was expecting it to run at any moment.
