Three people in the US have been caught on CCTV stealing a shark by disguising it as a baby.

One of them grabbed the animal by its tail at San Antonio Aquarium in Texas before wrapping the mammal in a wet blanket and putting it in a bucket in a pushchair.

The horn shark named Miss Helen has since been recovered and it's reported a man's been arrested in connection.
