Possible sighting of great white shark

A holidaymaker from Yorkshire claims he saw a great white shark off Cornwall's coast at the end of June. Using a mobile phone he recorded footage of something about 200 yards from Porthmeor Beach at St Ives. Cornwall coastguards have rubbished the suggestion of it being a great white and say the claims are "scaremongering". Other experts are slightly more cautious but were saying that the visitor was more likely to have seen a basking shark or a mako or a porbeagle shark.

The sighting was about a month ago it should be noted. I see that ITV are showing a film called 'Jaws' tonight. Now there's a coincidence!
