Just read up on the Med - quite a few sharks there as the waters a LOT warmer than ours but very rare do they ever attack anyone!!! Last was in 1984 off Greece - and look how many people swim in the Med!!!

Oh I don't know about that!

A good few years ago off the Nab Tower a Basking Shark landed on a small Fishing boat and sank it....If I remember correctly.
