No Loch Ness Monster sightings for first time since 1925

For the first time in almost 90 years no "confirmed sightings" have been made of the Loch Ness Monster, a veteran Nessie spotter has said.


Gary Campbell, who keeps a register of sightings, said no-one had come forward in 18 months to say they had seen the monster.


Bookmaker William Hill also said the three entries to its annual Nessie spotting contest could be explained.


They were images of a wave, a duck and a picture not even taken on Loch Ness.


Mr Campbell said it was the first time since 1925 that there had been no confirmed reports of the monster.


He said: "It's very upsetting news and we don't know where she's gone.


"The number of sightings has been reducing since the turn of the century but this is the first time in almost 90 years that Nessie wasn't seen at all."
'Time out'
Mr Campbell, a chartered accountant based in Inverness, has been logging Nessie sightings for 17 years after seeing something in the loch himself.


As Nessie's registrar of sightings, he has put together a list of sightings going back 1,500 years.


Irish missionary St Columba is said to have encountered a beast in the River Ness in 565AD.

Alfred Cruickshank drives down the road and sees a nine foot long monster with a nine foot long tail, an arched back, four elephant-like legs and webbed feet. Is khaki green in colour.

Nessie is a Scottish nationalist.

That probably explains why it's gone into hiding.

Maybe Loch Ness can be repopulated by lake monsters from other lakes?

Maybe they can get a breeding program started. The right lighting and some mood
music and Viagra and lingerie could go a long ways....

England have just beaten Scotland 20-0 in the rugby union Six Nations Championship in Edinburgh.

There is a small chance that that will be the last time the two play each other with Scotland sucking from England's generous bosom.
