Biggest carp (Which is still up for debate) in Britain found dead.!

The biggest carp ever seen in the UK has died. Big Rig, which once weighed 71lb 4oz, perished after spawning at the Avenue in Shropshire. Tom Doherty was the first to catch Big Rig, at 69lb 3oz The fish was never ratified by the British Record Fish Committee as an official record because it had been transferred from a stock pond to the syndicate venue at a high weight.
