Earlier this month, a British man captured a giant crab in Lyme Bay near Lyme Regis, Dorset. The crab had a shell width of 30cm (12 inches) and it weighed 7.7 kg (17lbs). It measures over 60cm across and is thought to be the largest edible crab ever captured in British waters. Take a look at the picture above.

Paul Worsley, 39, of Aylesbury Ducks Sub Aqua Club who managed to haul the creature from the sea bed during a diving trip in Lyme Bay, said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. I’ve seen and caught crabs before but never one as big as this.”
