Ashford anglers mourn death of giant carp 'Two Tone'
A mirror carp, thought to be one of the UK's biggest freshwater fish, has been found dead in the lake where it lived in Kent.
"Two Tone", who weighed 67lb 14oz, was found floating on the surface of Conningbrook Lake in Ashford.
The fish, which gained its name because of its skin colour, was thought to be between 40 and 45 years old.
Fisherman Lee Jackson, Mid Kent Fisheries Manager Chris Logsdon, and his son Chris junior, have discussed what the carp meant to them.
