Angler nets Kylie Minogue-sized whopper

Martin Locke with his 94lb carp


A fisherman reeled in a world record when he netted this whopping carp in sub-zero temperatures - wearing just a T-Shirt.

Angler Martin Locke, pictured here wearing a little more, pulled the monster from a fishing spot in southern France, braving temperatures as low as -3C.

Tipping the scales at 94lbs, the giant weighs the same as pint-sized pop star Kylie Minogue and beat the previous record by about 3lbs.
