New record for biggest cod caught by British angler

A fisherman is celebrating after landing the biggest cod ever caught by a British angler.

Bert Williams caught the 93lb fish in the sea off Norway, 10lb off the world record for cod.

Mr Williams described the events to Eddie Mair on BBC Radio 4's PM, saying: "Then I had a big bite and thought, god I have hooked a dolphin."
