Massive Shark Caught By Hampshire Fishermen

Two Hampshire fishermen have caught what's believed to be the biggest shark ever found off the coast of Britain.

Wayne Comben from Havant and Graeme Pullen from Hook found the ten foot long shark off the coast of Cornwall.

They struggled for about 90 minutes, and were towed along by it for about a mile, before they caught it.

They tagged and released the 550lb Porbeagle, which is a relative of the great white.

Porbeagles and blue sharks are said to be migrating in large numbers to UK waters as there is not enough food for them in the Atlantic.

A video of the fishermen's struggle has now appeared on You Tube:
