The Tiddler Who Caught A Monster

There should only have been one winner. On the riverbank was Jessica Wanstall, 4ft 10in tall weighing less than 84lb and something of a tiddler among anglers. In the river was a monster, a near 9ft catfish that hit the scales at a record 193lb.

But despite its size and whiskery age, the fish was no match for the skills of 11-year-old Jessica who waged a 20-minute battle to land her prize.

Goof for her! She's going to be a person to contend with when she grows up.
