A British angler has netted a place in the record books after catching the world's biggest albino catfish after seven years of trying.<br />
<br />
Bernie Campbell battled the rare 8ft-long monster for 30 minutes before finally hauling it in.<br />
<br />
Skip hire boss Bernie has spent seven years trying to catch an albino catfish but the bizarre-looking creatures had evaded him until now.<br />
<br />
And the rod-bending catch, his first ever, tipped the scales at a whopping 206lbs, smashing the existing world record by 10lbs.
