Around 50 anglers gathered to pay their last respects to Two Tone, Britain’s largest mirror carp, who died last weekend.

The fishermen, some holding flowers, went to Conningbrook Lake in Ashford where the monster fish lived for a special service and the unveiling of a plaque in his memory on Sunday morning.

The carp’s body will be stuffed and donated to the Natural History Museum in London.

Two Tone, who was thought to be 45-years-old, was 67lb 14oz when he was last caught.

He was found dead in the lake behind Julie Rose Stadium in Willesborough Road on Saturday, August 14.
