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, saying: "Then I had a big bite and thought, god I have hooked a dolphin."
