Matt Harris has sent this piccy for posting,

"This creature found in South Wales, said to emerge on wet nights, and there's been more than one of them.
 
Looks like a partial albino smooth newt to me - what do you think?  I'll try to get more photo's if it's seen again.
 
Matt"

It's head looks so flat in that photo, and it's body so fat...
