First shark attack on surfer in UK waters leaves man with small cut on his thumb

7 Jun

If truth be told, Steven Spielberg would have struggled to turn it into a blockbuster.

Last night, Britain was reeling from the news that a surfer had suffered the first ever shark attack in UK waters.

Unlike the poor victims in the movie Jaws, Rich Thomson was fortunate to walk away from the attack with a cut to his thumb.

Mr Thomson, 30, said he would refuse to allow the incident to deter him from venturing into the sea in the future. 

“It won’t stop me going back in the water and it shouldn’t stop anyone,” he said, “I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
