UK: caught a record size thresher shark
A group of fishermen friends have landed what they believe to be a record-breaking thresher shark.
One of the anglers spent over one hour dragging the 368 lb or 167 kg huge fish on board the boat off the coast of Cornwall the past Sunday.
Angler Nick Lane, said they had submitted a record application after the Shark Trust calculated the weight based on the shark's dimensions.
To be the largest shark caught in British waters it will need to break the previous record set in 1982 by a 323lb (147kg) thresher shark.
