Newtongrange man Steven Pearson (50)proudly displays the 10lb 12oz brown trout he caught on the River Esk last September.

Steven took his catch to the Dean Tavern, where the previous record fish caught in 1949, weighing 6lb 4oz, is on display above the bar.

Steven said nobody was interested in displaying his catch, adding: “I didn’t have a freezer big enough to keep it, I didn’t have a clue what to do with it, so I ate it. It was lovely.”
