The world's largest seahorse has been discovered by a fisherman off the British coast, sparking fresh hope for the threatened mystical creatures.<br />
<br />
The whopping 13-inch spiny seahorse was accidentally hauled in by Michael Bailey while he was out fishing for mullet in Poole Harbour, Dorset.<br />
<br />
Experts say the enormous fish is around twice the average size for the species - and smashes the existing record by almost two inches.
