A seven foot fish has been washed up on a Cornish beach.

A group of friends on holiday discovered it in the water at Kingsand.

The giant Bluefin Tuna is estimated at being worth around £1m.

They won't see of the money as it is a rare and protected species.

It will now be taken to the University of Exeter Tremough campus in Penryn for scientific tests.

Sarah Little was one of the girls who found it, she said: "At first we did think oh my goodness what is this is it a shark, but we quickly found out it wasn't and just wanted to have a closer look really, we were just curious more than anything else, it's pretty crazy it's not the usual thing you'd expect to find in the water in Cornwall.

"It's pretty cool knowing that we found this incredibly valuable fish, not too fussed about the money to be honest, obviously it would have been fantastic to earn that money from such a random find, but money never had is money never lost."
