A Japanese spider crab believed to be the biggest seen in Britain has gone on display.

Named Crab Kong, he has a claw span of more than 8ft (2.4m), weighs 15kg (33lb) and is 30-40 years old.

The male spider crab was caught earlier this month by fishermen in Suruga Bay, south west of Tokyo.

The crab is on display at the Weymouth Sea Life Park but will be transferred to a permanent home at a Sea Life centre in Munich, Germany, at Easter.

The crabs are commonly found in the Pacific in 1,000 ft (300m) deep waters but have been known to live deeper.
