Deadly fish 'with poison 1,200 times deadlier than cyanide' found on Brit beach

A deadly fish loaded with poison up to 1,200 times more deadly than cyanide has been found on a British beach.

Marine animal investigator Constance Morris was on a family holiday to Newquay, Cornwall, but work followed her to Towan Beach where she knew instantly that something unusual had washed up.

She approached a fish being pecked at by seagulls and swiftly clocked it was an oceanic puffer, which according to National Geographic, contains tetrodotoxin, up to 1,200 times more toxic than cyanide.
