A new British record fish has been landed, Angling Times can reveal.
The specimen was landed from a Hertfordshire stillwater, and was witnessed by two other anglers, and weighed on two sets of scales.
With all the relevant boxes ticked, a claim has been sent to the British Record Fish Committee, and the lucky angler looks set to have his name etched into the history books.
