Nessie: The Eel Thing
Mystery Casebook <<--ImageThe Loch Ness Monster, as illustrated by Channel 5 in the Ultimate Experiment 7th October 2007 By Dominik Lemanski Your Shout

THE Loch Ness Monster is back – and it’s all thanks to your Daily Star Sunday.

A fresh “sighting” of the legendary creature is being hailed as one of the most exciting in history.

The film was uncovered after we tracked down top monster experts to explain why reports of Nessie “activity” had dwindled to just two in the last year.

We discovered they had been sitting on a goldmine of footage.

And the best was shot on a camcorder by Nessie fan Gordon Holmes, 55, a university technician.

He filmed an “eel or snake-like” creature swimming north in the loch last month.

And he exclusively told the Daily Star Sunday: “It was travelling very efficiently just below the surface at about six miles per hour on Loch Ness.

“It was pretty long and jet black and occasionally broke the surface. 

“Once I filtered the video image I could see what appears to be an eel-like image with large fins or humps.”

Mikko Takala, 39, boss of the Nessie fan site www.lochness.co.uk, said: “I am very excited about Gordon’s footage.

“It looks like an eel or serpent-like creature moving through the water in an unidentifiable way.

“It is very dramatic – one of the best sightings in years. And nobody has been able to say what it is.” He added: “It’s great that the Daily Star Sunday has put the spotlight back on the search for Nessie.

“I now hope a wealthy benefactor like Roman Abramovich, Richard Branson or Mohammed Al Fayed comes forward to help finance a proper hi-tech expedition in search of Nessie.”

Gary Campbell, 42, founder and president of the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club said: “This sighting is truly inexplicable. That’s what makes it so exciting.

“It is one of the three best “spots” in the last ten years. As far as the monster hunters are concerned, the legend of Nessie is still very much alive and well.”
