THIS is the moment a shark is spotted swimming off the coast of a popular UK holiday hotspot.
A video shared on Twitter appears to show the big fish in the water just off East Preston beach in West Sussex.
The footage shows a shark fin gliding through the water a few hundred yards away from the beach.
It can be seen changing direction a number of times, as well as stopping still.
The post was flooded with comments, with a mix of humour and fear at the sight of the beast.
One commenter said: "It's really quite unnerving".
Another chimed in: "Well that's me never going in the sea again then."
Some, though, found the funny side, with one viewer writing "Going to need a bigger boat" in reference to the film Jaws.

Others joined in the joke, tweeting more movie references and even a gif of the film itself.
Meanwhile, a number of viewers were sceptical, with one claiming it was likely a dolphin.
Another claimed that it was likely to be just a piece of metal pipe floating around.
However, the changes of direction would seem to suggest it was a real fish of some kind.
