This is the incredible moment four fishermen friends get to grips with the biggest ever blue shark caught in British waters. <br />
<br />
The enormous 256lb monster shark obliterated the previous record of 214lbs, which has stood for 58 years. <br />
<br />
The 9ft long deadly shark fish was caught during a fishing trip off Penzance, Cornwall, by amateur angler John Dine.<br />
<br />
With the help of his three mates, John spent an hour reeling the predator in towards the 30ft fishing they were on.<br />
<br />
John used a 400lb, 49-strand Fin-Nor rod and reel to bring it in.
