A Surrey man is keeping several escapee goldfish in his garden after rescuing them during the recent Thames flooding.
Dave Pope from Egham caught the first fish in 25cm/10" of water using a teapot that also happened to be floating past at the time.
The following day he caught another goldfish — a white one this time — and his neighbour's son caught a third.
Mr Pope says he also spotted a red and white goldfish making its escape, but was unable to catch it.
He says if no one comes forward to claim the fish he'll give them to his brother-in-law who has a pond — and whose Koi ended up swimming around his garden in the floods!
