    JAWS Heading for Britain..!

    For the first time EVER, a Great White Shark is heading to the UK on its holidays...If ever there was evidence of climate change, and an increase in sea temperatures, it has to be this...Lydia (as scientists have named the 15 foot female fish) is normally a resident of Californian or South African coasts, but is travelling at one HELL of a speed over to our waters. Experts reckon she is fewer than 72 hours' away...

    Needless to say, I will NOT be entering the sea this summer, or for the foreseeable future...I have a feeling that Lydia is just the first of many...

    UK-bound great white shark continues path towards Cornish coast travelling 209 miles in just THREE days

    Mar 10, 2014 11:21
    By Ben Burrows

    Lydia was spotted just 1,000 miles off the shore of south-west England, and she could reach Britain in less than 72 hours

    A great white shark heading towards the UK coastline is moving ever closer.

    Lydia, who was spotted on Friday only a 1,000 miles from Cornwall, has been travelling at a frenetic rate.

    The 2,000lb shark has swum more the 19,000 miles all the way from America.

    And now, according to OCEARCH's tracking software, the massive fish has apparently covered a colossal 209 miles in the last three days.

    She had begun to swim further northwards and at 10.13pm yesterday was heading in the general direction of Iceland.

    However, overnight the monster fish started swimming east and at 7.57am this morning was once again heading towards the UK.

    She could still reach the Cornish coast in less than 72 hours.

    At 4.4m, Lydia is longer than the average family car.

    She was found by scientists in Florida last year, and, thanks to the fitted tracking device, can be pinpointed every time her fin breaks the surface of the ocean.

    Experts say she will not be unduly worried about the colder waters as she continues her path north.

    On the tracker it appears she could be heading towards the UK, where the mild weather has meant waters are teeming with smaller fish sharks love to eat.

    She is set to become the first of her species to be actually seen crossing from one side of the Atlantic Ocean to the other.

    But the shark's route towards Cornwall would not be the first time great whites have been suspected of entering British waters - with scientists warning the species could become more common as sea temperatures rise with global warming.

    Last year a fisherman moored off the Cornish coast saw a small blue shark on the end of his line come up with huge bite marks across it - suggesting it had been attacked by another shark the size of a great white.

    Dr Gregory Skomal, senior fisheries biologist with Massachusetts Marine Fisheries, said: “We have no idea how far she will go, but Europe, the Med, and the coast of Africa are all feasible.”

    What am i missing here?

    She travelled 209 miles in 3 days which apparently is very fast.
    She was 1000 miles off the UK coast - lets say she is now roughly 791 miles off the coast
    But she will reach the coast in 72 hours ?

    I wasn't trying to be funny. I really don't understand where they got that she could be at the UK coast in 3 days if covering 200 miles in 3 days is very fast.
