A businessman who lost his mobile phone on a beach was amazed when it turned up - in the belly of a giant cod.
Andrew Cheatle thought it had been swept out to sea after it slipped from his pocket.
But a week later his girlfriend's mobile rang and it was fisherman Glen Kerley saying he'd found the phone in a 25lb fish, reports The Sun.
Andrew got the handset back, dried it out - and amazingly it still works.
Andrew, 45, said: "I was messing about with my dog and my phone must have fallen out and been swept out in the swell. I kept calling it but I gave up hope after a couple of days."
He was shopping for a new phone with girlfriend Rita Smith, 33, when her mobile went off.
She told him: "Your old mobile number is calling my phone."
Andrew continued: "She said some guy was going on about my phone and a cod so she handed it over to me and he told me where he had found it.
"I thought he was winding me up but he assured me he had caught a cod that morning and was gutting it for his fish stall and that my Nokia was inside it - a bit worse for wear."
Glen, of Worthing, West Sussex, said: "Cod are greedy fish - they'll eat anything. They have big heads and big mouths.
"I've found plastic cups, stones, teaspoons, batteries and I've also heard of someone finding false teeth in one.
"It was a bit smelly but I was glad to return it."
