A Scottish reef that is home to more than 100 million colourful and rare shellfish could be the largest of its kind anywhere in the world.

The reef of flame shells, which covers an area more than 40 times larger than the UK's biggest shopping centre, was discovered during a survey commissioned by Marine Scotland.

It was found in Loch Alsh, a sea inlet between Skye and the Scottish mainland, which could now be given extra environmental protection.

Was hoping for some nice colourful photographs. :(

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde
