Huge sardine swarm leaps en masse to escape Indian fishermens' nets1m25s

Huge sardine swarm leaps en masse to escape Indian fishermens' nets

Fishermen off the Indian coast witnessed a unique phenomenon on Monday (November 12), where a huge catch of sardines swarmed and leapt en masse to try and escape their nets. The fishermen were working off the coast of Mattu in Udupi, Karnataka in southern India, and were surprised when they pulled up their nets and finding them overloaded with sardines, known locally as boothai. The fish are well known for being made into mouth-watering local delicacies, but are now the subject of controversy over regulation measures being taken to preserve their falling numbers. The sardine population has been in steady decline due to climate change, over-fishing and depletion of juvenile fish populations, causing an extended ban to be laid on catching sardines during the monsoon season. This may have spurred an increased density of sardine shoals, causing the massive catch filmed here.

Dozens injured as Sri Lankan parliament erupts into indoor brawl

Sri Lankan MPs brawled on the floor of parliament, putting one in hospital, in the latest escalation of the political turmoil that has left the country without an agreed prime minister or cabinet. The session on Thursday morning (November 15) was abandoned after supporters of Mahinda Rajapaksa, the disputed prime minister, rushed at the parliament’s speaker, Karu Jayasuriya. Jayasuriya was defended by MPs loyal to Ranil Wickremesinghe, who was dismissed from the prime ministership a fortnight ago and replaced with Rajapaksa, in what Wickremesinghe’s supporters say was a political coup. The men, most dressed in white cotton robes, pushed and jostled each other. Some could be seen throwing punches and one MP hurled a wastepaper basket in the speaker’s direction. Dilum Amunugama, a Rajapaksa loyalist, was cut as he tried to take the speaker’s microphone, bloodying his shirt, and was later admitted to hospital. The speaker, Rajapaksa and Wickremesinghe all eventually left the chamber as the fighting continued on the house floor.

Kristie said her mum is one of the most wonderful people on earth and has been really affected by losing him like this. "He valued his reg plates seen as it said 'Dad 494x'." She added, explaining the significance of the number. "494x to my family means may god be with you till we meet again, we put it on all our texts, cards, letters and say it over the phone to one another. So it really has a big meaning behind it." Kristie has recently set up a charity in her grandads memory called 'Tillie’s Thoughts' to promote awareness about mental health among the elderly.
