A British angler has reeled in the world's biggest carp fish weighing a whopping 222lbs. <br />
<br />
Tim Webb, 57, landed the enormous Siamese carp after an exhausting 90 minute battle at a lake in Ban Pong, Thailand. <br />
<br />
The fisherman, who owns a Thai fishery, lured the carp onto his line using a simple bait of bread and bran rice before engaging in the gruelling battle. <br />
<br />
After being hauled to land, the giant carp tipped the scales at a staggering 222lbs, almost 16 stone, smashing the previous record by over 40lbs.
