A Scottish skipper has set a new world record after finding a message in a bottle 98 years after it was released.
Andrew Leaper's discovery beat the previous record for the longest time a bottle has been adrift at sea by more than five years.
And he found the bottle while skippering the same fishing boat that had set the previous record, the Shetland-based vessel Copious.
"It was an amazing coincidence," Leaper told BBC News.
The find was confirmed as a new record by Guinness World Records.
The drift bottle — containing a postcard that promised a reward of six pence to the finder — was released in June 1914 by Captain CH Brown of the Glasgow School of Navigation.
