A jellyfish filmed swimming off the coast of Cornwall is thought to be the biggest ever caught on camera in Britain. The four-foot wide barrel jellyfish, which is also known as the dustbin-lid jellyfish, was filmed by diver and archeologist Robert Lenfert. Robert, 42, and his wife Natasha, 39, met the giant creature off Pendennis Point, near Falmouth, Cornwall. The pair swam beside the giant sea beast for half an hour as it glided through the water.
Videographer / Director: Robert Lenfert, Producer: Amanda Stringfellow, Editor: Jack Stevens.
Experts demolish exactly half a tower block in China
An incredible video has emerged of a large tower block in northern China being split precisely in half during a controlled demolition on Tuesday. A demolition crew managed to knock down just side of the once iconic Xiangyun Building in the city of Shenyang, Liaoning Province, leaving the other half remaining. A wrecking ball was used to knock out the supports to the structure while strategically placed explosives controlled the implosion. Once the wreckage is cleared away, the site is to be used for a new commercial complex, with an indoor theme park, huge five-star hotel, hypermarket, and office block. Credit: Newsflare/zhangcl521
