Fisherman catches rare yellow lobster

US fisherman Denny Ingram has caught a rare, yellow lobster in Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay.

Experts say only one in 30 million lobsters classify as yellow lobsters, which typically have golden backs.

Natural genetic variations are responsible for the lobster's unlikely colour.

Mr Ingram's prized catch will go on display at a fishermen's co-op in Newport, Rhode Island.
