Loch Ness Monster Hunting Pals Think They Spotted Mythical Beast

Loch Ness Monster Hunting Pals Think They Spotted Mythical Beast

Two Geordie Loch Ness monster hunters believe they've spotted the mythical creature. See footage of a recent sighting here:

Warren Speed and Jamie Huntley were making a documentary about the notoriously camera shy creature last Wednesday (30 March) when they noticed a five-metre-long whale-like hump bob above the surface of the famous loch in Scotland.

But frustratingly, 35-year-old Jamie was only able to capture the ripples on the surface by the time he'd got his camera out.

"If we had arrived literally 10 seconds earlier, we would have caught this properly on camera," Warren, from Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, Northumberland, said.

"We were absolutely gutted that we missed what would have been a genuinely historic picture."

For hundreds of years people have been trying to find the Loch Ness Monster, which brings in nearly £41 million ($53 million) in goods and services every year, according to research from 2018.

Warren said the creature looked like an 'upturned boat' - but was adamant that it wasn't in fact an upturned boat.

He said: "As we are actually here in Loch Ness filming a documentary on all of the strange occurrences in the area, we expect ridicule and disbelief but we both know exactly what we saw.

"Nessie hunter Steve Feltham, who we met later in the day, agreed our experience sounded and looked like a genuine sighting similar to others over the years. 

"And Jamie has logged it with the Register of Nessie sightings."

Jamie, from Gateshead, got a better look of the mysterious loch object and said it kind of looked like it had 'whale skin crossed with fish skin'.

He said: "The object/creature was reflecting the water so looked wet, almost like a whale skin crossed with a fish skin it was dark in colour, darker than the water surrounding it.

"There were dark greys, black, browns in colour, it almost looked like how a whale hump might look breaking the surface, minus the fin.

"There was a definite movement but I didn't see too much of the movement before trees obscured it, it was a very big size at least 15 foot-long, maybe bigger, around the middle of the loch."

So unfortunately for the pals, it was another case of so close, yet so far away.

Better loch next time.
