A shark has been spotted swimming through the crystal-clear water of St Ives.

Hollie and Tristan Campion were out and about when they saw the creature on Saturday.

The couple say it came right into Smeaton's Pier and reckon it was about six-foot long.

They managed to capture the magical moment on camera, which looks like it is somewhere tropical.

Hollie said: "We were in St Ives on Saturday watching the gig rowing and having a wander round, we went over to Smeaton's Pier and sae the shark in the water.

"There were a lot of kids doing pier jumping and they shouted 'there's a shark, there's a shark' and we thought they were joking, but we went over to have a look and it came right in a couple of metres away from the pier.

"It was so slow and slinky through the water, it came in and went away then came back in again, it was amazing.

"I feel really privileged, you just don't see anything like that, I'd never seen a shark before.

"We think it was about five or six feet, no idea what kind of shark it was but I don't think it was a basking shark as it didn't have the right nose for it.

"My husband was amazed, he's been swimming with basking sharks before but thought this was absolutely amazing."

You can watch the amazing moment below...
