The world's largest saltwater crocodile in captivity has died, leaving villagers in tears in a backwater town that shot to prominence because of the immense reptile.

A vet rushed to check the one-tonne crocodile after it flipped over with a bloated stomach in its cage in an eco-tourism park. It died a few hours later.

The giant saltwater crocodile measured 20.24ft.
