Blobfish wins ugliest animal vote

The blobfish has won a public vote to become the official mascot of the Ugly Animal Preservation Society.

It means the fish has the unofficial title of world's ugliest animal, beating the proboscis monkey, the pig-nosed turtle, and an amphibian affectionately known as a "scrotum frog."

Victoria Gill has been looking at the line-up.
