Steve the fish found in a puddle after getting lost in flood

Finally some good news after the floods. Does that sound unlikely? Well it is a fishy story. Yes a giant sturgeon called Steve swam out of his pond in Romsey during the wet weather. His owners - at an aquatic centre - assumed their £1,000 pound fish had been washed away forever.

In fact he'd only made it as far as the local car-wash down the road, where he was found in a puddle. But his friend Chad, a koi carp, is still missing, possibly stranded by the receding floodwater. And there's a reward on his fishy head...as Andrew Pate reports.
