Folkestone could be the home of the largest goldfish in Britain, writes the Mail on Sunday.

According to the newspaper, experts believe a 15.7 inch long and 5 inch high fish which weighs in at more than 2lb could be heading for a world record, currently held by a Dutchman who owned a 18.7inch whopper in 2003.

Goldie belongs to Ada Shaw, an 83-year-old former civil servant from Folkestone.

She bought him for 99p from a pet shop 15 years ago when he was just an inch long.
