The world's fastest shark has been caught off the Welsh coast - the first in British waters in 42 years.The 6ft-long Mako shark - a cousin of the man-eating Great White - was landed by Welsh actor on holiday in Pembrokeshire.
Anglesey-born Julian Lewis Jones was fishing with pals 30 miles off Milford Haven when he landed the fish - officially described as the fastest species of shark in the ocean.
Juliian said, "We saw this flash that whizzed passed the boat - it was a big white belly and it went so, so fast. Next thing this shark leapt 15ft in the air off the back of the stern of the boat. We all looked at each other and said: 'That's a mako' and we knew the importance of it."
A fisherman who dropped his glasses into the sea couldn't believe his eyes as his
optician offered to dive in to find them. Keen angler Mike Richardson, 69, was fishing on a friend's boat when his glasses slipped off and disappeared into the water.
Mike's friend rang his optician Nick King, luckily a qualified deep sea diver, to order an emergency pair of the £250 glasses, but nick's response was to find them himself, 20ft down on the seabed. Owner and glasses were successfully reunited after only 5 minutes of searching Swansea Marina.
Mike said: "We were all amazed when Nick came up from the freezing water with my glasses. We thought he’d never find them because it’s very murky water down there and the frames are dark so they’d have been extremely hard to see"
Nick said: "Glasses retrieval isn’t normally part of the Specsavers service. But in this case I’m happy to have obliged and taken customer service to new depths, quite literally"
