A one-in-a-hundred-million albino lobster is to make his home at Sea Life Manchester. Theodore, as he's been named at the centre, was due to end up in a cooking pot before being spared that fate by Sea Life staff.

The lobster, which was found off the coast of Weymouth, has an absence of colour due to a lack of melanin. This extremely rare phenomenon causes the white colouring.
