Andy Harman with the 10 stone carp. <br />
<br />
A British tourist has set a new record after landing the world's biggest carp fish which weighs the same as a person.<br />
<br />
Andy Harman reeled in the gigantic 10-stone Siamese carp after battling it for an exhausting 50 minutes before finally getting the better of it.<br />
<br />
Mr Harman, from Reigate, Surrey, had been holidaying at a fishing resort in Thailand when he hooked the mammoth fish.<br />
<br />
The angler lured the fish onto his line using a simple bait of bread at the idyllic three-acre Palm Tree Lagoon in Ratchaburi then spent the best part of an hour trying to land it.<br />
<br />
To his surprise the monster carp weighed in at 150lbs - 16lbs heavier than the previous world record.
