Lobster's lucky escape after Swansea chef's change of heart
A Swansea chef is to release a lobster he purchased back into the sea - because he can't bring himself to cook it.
The crustacean weighs in at six pounds but is estimated to be worth around £120 on customers' plates.
Anthony Christopher is so fond of the creature that he has named it after his mother Merial, joking: "Once they both get their claws out there's no telling the difference between them!"
Anthony says he believes Merial the lobster is around 40-50 years old, adding: "A lobster that old deserves to get back to the sea for a second chance."
