    Loch Ness Monster In The Thames ?

    Post by Jan1 on Wed Apr 06 2016, 14:43

    Call for Jeremy Wade of River Monsters fame !

    Has the Loch Ness Monster been spotted in the River Thames of all places ?
    Should I have put this in the jokes section ... I wonder?

    But no over the media yesterday these pictures were emerging ...


    "A mysterious multi-humped shape moving quickly down the Thames has been filmed from a cable car above London.

    YouTube user Penn Plate posted the footage last week, writing: “This was on the cable car in Greenwich yesterday. Something huge was moving under the water and then briefly surfaced. Are there whales in the Thames?? Or is it some weird submarine?”

    It has been viewed more than 200,000 times, with many viewers leaving comments erring on the skeptical side and complaining that the cameraman is apparently incapable of holding his device still.

    While Godzilla is one suggestion, the Loch Ness Monster has also been floated (sorry), as has the possibility that Donald Trump’s wig has taken to London’s central river.

    User Finn appears to be the voice of reason as she remarked: “If you slow it down enough and pause it, kind of looks like a pod of dolphins or porpoises... but it’s way more exciting to think that it’s some crazy undiscovered ancient beast that’s probably going to crawl out of the river and start eating people and toppling buildings, so I’m gonna go with that.”

    Further suggestions appear to agree with the original witness, speculating the mystery shape is a either a humpback or sperm whale.

    The Evening Standard writes that 49 whales, more than 2,000 seals and some 450 porpoises and dolphins have apparently been sighted in the Thames in the past ten years.

    However if it is indeed Nessie, she’s strayed somewhat off course, as according to lore the serpentine beast is said to have has haunted the murky waters of Scotland’s Loch Ness since 1933.


    Believed by many to be the last of a line of long-surviving plesiosaurs, (a Jurassic marine reptile) legend has it that the creature appears along with earth tremors and swirling bubbles.

    Nessie first hit headlines in 1934 when the Daily Mail published what it claimed was the first picture of the beast."

    But was it Nessie?

    There are historical/mythical sea/river creatures in other places too, like the Lampton Worm, and of course Great Orme's Head was named after another one.

    Could have been a whale, we had several stranded on beaches mainly around Norfolk recently.

    OTOH it could have been Boris Johnson fell off his bike.

    Fast forward to August 2016 ... and it appears there may be a boost to the 'Loch Ness' tourist industry,
    The reason, well instead of being 'spotted' in the Thames, Nessie may be back on home territory!

    " Is this Nessie? Holidaymaker claims to have snapped a photo of Loch Ness Monster while she was having lunch on the balcony of her holiday home
    Calley Tulleth said her 'eyes popped out' when she saw 'this blue thing'
    The 28-year-old holidaying by Loch Ness said it quickly disappeared
    According to The Official Sightings Register there have been five in 2016

    A holidaymaker reckons she has captured the Loch Ness Monster on camera.
    Gobsmacked Calley Tulleth, 28, was having lunch on the balcony of her holiday let when she saw a mysterious ripple on the surface.
    She said her eyes 'popped out' of her head and she grabbed her camera to capture a few snaps yesterday.
