Can any of you tell me any more about this marine worm that wreaked havoc in the British aquarium?

 

AOL story-Jumbo Worm:

 

525

 

This 4-foot-long sea worm was devastating coral reef and terrorizing fish at an aquarium in Cornwall, southwestern England, the Daily Mail reported Tuesday. The creature, known as "Barry," devoured bait traps -- hooks and all -- and bit through a 20-pound fishing line before staffers finally managed to capture it. The worm was moved to its own tank

Sure was hoping to hear from some of the folks here that have some knowledge in marine biology.

I never heard of a worm that can do this kind of destruction. Article said-killed and cut coral in half, killed fish, broke traps & hooks and hides pretty well.

Anybody??
