The goldfish that swims upside down!!!

Meet the pub goldfish which has spent the past four years swimming upside down. 

Aussie floats with its belly pointing up and its eyes staring down because of a problem with its swim bladder. 

Regulars at the Globe Inn, in Lympstone, near Exeter, joke that the fish must be drunk. Pub landlord Liam Matthews, 53, bought the goldfish from a pet shop in 2004 but it began swimming upside down six months later. 

He said: 'She seems happy enough - as far as you can tell with a fish.'
