Loch Ness Monster spotted 600 miles from home in ‘rare’ sighting

Something that looked a lot like Nessie was seen bobbing about in the Bristol Channel.

The Loch Ness Monster might have gone on a holiday, as people in Clevedon, Somerset, couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw a creature that looked just like Nessie.

The mysterious animal was spotted 600 miles away from its usual spot in Scotland, right by the town’s old pier one day last February, reports the Daily Record.

Loads of people saw this big thing, several feet long, swimming around in the Bristol Channel. They all grabbed their phones to snap pictures.

The ‘creature’ had a bendy shape and bits sticking out, making some folks sure it was Nessie taking a break from Loch Ness.

Anna Purse was enjoying a walk with her daughter Grace, who is seven, when they noticed the ‘monster’ near the water.

Mrs Purse shared: “We were walking along the seafront and were sitting on one of the benches before the pier. The shape was right next to the pier and I noticed it moving.”

“It moved all the way along the sea in front of us whilst we were sitting there. Grace said it looked like a sea monster. Just the shape of it reminded me of Nessie.”

Other people who caught a glimpse also put pictures online, and loads of comments came flooding in. Some joked that the famous monster must be “lost” to end up so far from the Highlands.

A local laughed: “Nessie getting a swim in before the council starts charging to swim in the sea.”

Although usually glimpsed within the depths of Loch Ness, other marine creatures like dolphins, porpoises, and seals have been spotted in the Bristol Channel.

Reports of the Loch Ness Monster first popped up in the 6th Century with St Columba. Over the years, people from across the globe have headed to the loch’s edge hoping for a glimpse of the enigmatic beast.

The most famous ‘sighting’ took place in 1934. A photograph presented a dark shape akin to a creature’s head and neck peering out of Loch Ness. The image, known as the ‘surgeon’s photograph’, was divulged as a hoax years later by one of the individuals implicated, on his deathbed.

However, after her initial idea that Nessie could be vacationing south, Mrs Purse concluded: “It was driftwood, of course, but just looked so unusual.”
