A goldfish was thrown from a car in a horrific motorway smash, then spent 15 minutes lying in the fast lane - and survived.
The 23-year-old driver was travelling on the M1 near Lutterworth, Leics., when the car crashed and overturned.
As paramedics treated the driver for neck and arm injuries, police spotted a fishtank in the footwell and saw that the inside of the car was soaked and strewn with coloured gravel.
A search of the car found nothing, but when officers started sweeping the motorway of glass and debris, they found a small goldfish in the third lane.
The paramedics gave the officers a cardboard tray and some water - and the fish, four-year-old Bercy, immediately started swimming.
The driver and fish have now fully recovered from their ordeal.
