Cornwall fisherman captures footage of huge basking shark outside St Mawes Harbour

A crab fisherman has captured extraordinarily close-up footage of a basking shark just outside St Mawes Harbour in Cornwall.

Barney Rosewall, who has been fishing commercially in the area for 15 years, said he was out hauling crab pots on Easter Sunday when the shark appeared alongside his boat.

Barney said he last saw the sharks around six years ago but has never seen one quite so close.

He says he was between St Mawes and St Anthony Lighthouse at the time.
