Fisherman escapes shark attack off Islay
A fisherman has escaped a shark attack after his crew caught the animal off Islay in the Inner Hebrides.
The 7ft porbeagle took hold of Hamish Currie's steel toe-capped boot after the skipper hauled it on to the deck of his vessel.
Mr Currie, 53, from Saltcoats, Ayrshire, targeted the shark after hearing reports of it attacking seals.
Mr Currie later told The JT: "The one in the boat was big enough but you should've seen The Great White that attacked us as well. Massive fucker that was."
Under attack from The Great White, Mr Currie managed to fool the shark into swallowing a gas canister and then shooting the canister thus blowing the evil creature up. "It was like a scene from the movie Jaws," Mr Currie told us, "except it really definitely happened, and no one can prove otherwise."
