Green parakeet sighting

Lucy B has contacted us to say that this morning she experienced a random sighting of a bright green parakeet opposite her house.
They are common in London but has anyone ever seen one in our area? Or, has someone lost a pet?
Has anyone else seen it?

Updated later the same day

A pair of ringnecked parakeets (Psittacula krameri) were feasting on yew berries in the church yard this lunch time. Here is a photo of the female. The male did not stand still long enough to photograph him. Presumably they are from the breeding populations in either Manchester or Sheffield touring the countryside. It will be interesting how long they stay. Peter T
