Shark recovering after operation


Surgery was performed on a shark at Weymouth Sea Life Park in Dorset before it was taken to the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham to recover.

The out-of-water operation was performed after a scan revealed a hook was deep inside the shark's mouth (images from Sea Life and BBC).
