Phone found in the belly of a fish... and it still works

A businessman who lost his phone on a beach was stunned when it was returned after being found inside the belly of a massive cod.

Andrew Cheatle thought his Nokia handset had been lost at sea after it slipped from his pocket.

Andrew, 45, told The Sun: "I was messing about with my dog and my phone must have fallen out and been swept out in the swell.

"I kept calling it but I gave up hope after a couple of days."

But a week later his girlfriend’s mobile rang and it was fisherman Glen Kerley who said he had found the phone in a 25lb cod.

She told him: "Your old mobile number is calling my phone."

Andrew continued: "She said some guy was going on about my phone and a cod so she handed it over to me and he told me where he had found it.

"I thought he was winding me up but he assured me he had caught a cod that morning and was gutting it for his fish stall and that my Nokia was inside it — a bit worse for wear.

"I didn’t believe him but went to meet him and found it was my phone — a bit smelly and battered — but incredibly it still worked after I let it dry out."

Trawlerman Glen, 45, had tried to use the phone but it didn’t work. So he took out the SIM card and put it in his handset to try to trace the owner.

Glen said: "Cod are greedy fish — they’ll eat anything. They have big heads and big mouths.

"I’ve found plastic cups, stones, teaspoons, batteries and I’ve also heard of someone finding false teeth in one.

"This fish was about 25lbs and about 4ft long — not unusual but bigger than average.

"I know what it’s like to lose your phone. It can be really frustrating. So I thought I may as well make a few calls to see if I could get it back to him.

"It was a bit smelly but I was glad to return it."
