The spectacular moment a 15ft long thresher shark stunned sightseers, 25 miles east of Prawle Point, Devon.<br />
<br />
This is the incredible moment a huge shark stunned sightseers by leaping clear of the water off the south coast of England.<br />
<br />
The deadly thresher shark jumped vertically through the air before slapping its elongated tail on the surface of the sea.<br />
<br />
Thresher sharks are usually found in the warmer waters of the mid-Atlantic but this 15ft long predator, which weighed about 350lbs, appeared in Lyme Bay.<br />
<br />
The hugely-rare sight was witnessed by a group of 10 nature lovers on a charter boat looking for dolphins 25 miles east of Prawle Point, Devon.
