Danish anglers urged to catch 80,000 escaped trout
Up to 80,000 farmed rainbow trout have been accidentally released into the sea in Denmark, prompting a call for anglers to try to catch them.
The accident happened when a cargo ship crashed into a fish farm on the Horsens Fjord on the Jutland peninsula.

A local environmentalist urged "anyone with fishing gear to... go fishing".
