See The Cornishman

A swimmer got up close to a huge basking shark while taking a dip at Sennen, west Cornwall.

The video clip, posted on website YouTube, shows a swimmer making out to sea before running into the hulking basking shark that is swimming effortlessly below the water.

The shark glides straight past the man, who captured the moment on an under-water camera.
