Catch of the day

Fishermen are hoping for a finder's fee after netting a mini yellow submarine seen floating near a Scottish island.

The remotely-operated vehicle (ROV), which is used to detect mines, is 10ft long and weighs 850kg.

It was spotted by fisherman John Baker off Islay after apparently breaking free from a Royal Navy ship.

It was towed to Port Ellen, hauled ashore and taken to a "safe place" by locals who say they are waiting for the navy to come and claim the vessel.

Reminds me of that line near the end of "Hunt For Red October", when the National Security Advisor says to the Soviet ambassador "don't tell've lost another submarine?"
