A goldfish owner has spent £500 on urgent medical treatment.

Star had a cancerous eye removed as part of the treatment, while Nemo also required medical attention, which pushed the total cost above the £500 mark.

Adam Tjolle, managing director of Inglis Veterinary Centres, said: ''In all my years as a vet I have never known anything quite like this. It's been an amazing experience.''

Animals expert Brigitte Lord - who conducted one of the operations - added: "The financial value of a goldfish may be quite small but I think the fact that someone should have paid that much for an operation reflects the true value of the bond between pets and humans.''
