Loch Ness Monster Found

The missing 30-foot Loch Ness Monster has been found after going missing almost 50 years ago, thanks to an underwater robot. The prop was built for a scene in the 1970 film The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, shot on the banks of the Loch Ness in Scotland.

Mr Shine told the BBC News Scotland website: "We have found a monster, but not the one many people might have expected.

"The model was built with a neck and two humps and taken alongside a pier for filming of portions of the film in 1969.

"The director did not want the humps and asked that they be removed, despite warnings I suspect from the rest of the production that this would affect its buoyancy.

"And the inevitable happened. The model sank."

They had to make another model, of just the head and neck, to complete the film. But now a project to explore the depths of the lake has employed a robot from a Norwegian company, which had taken sonar images of the lake’s bottom. One of those images clearly shows the prop monster. The robot had made other finds, too, which you can read about at BBC News. -via Arbroath
