The One That Got Aweigh

No Scales Of Justice

A salmon thought to be the biggest ever caught in Britain will not enter the record books - because it was too big for the scales. The giant fish was 56 inches long, 50 inches round and could have been more than 64lbs. Anglers hoped it would break the UK record set 85 years ago but had to set it free after realising their scales only weighed up to 30lbs. The anglers sent photos of the monster to marine experts in the hope they may be able to estimate the weight.
