Loch Ness Monster surfaces on Google Earth

Scottish leviathan spied from space

Top three mobile application threats

Scotland's Loch Ness is doubtless braced for a stampede of Nessie-spotters after a reader of UK tabloid The Sun provided Google Earth evidence of the existence of the Scottish lake's elusive leviathan:

Loch Ness showing possible Nessie sighting

A close-up of the possible Nessie sighting

Eagle-eyed security guard Jason Cooke, 25, from Nottingham, enthused: "I couldn't believe it. It's just like the descriptions of Nessie."

Researcher Adrian Shine, of the Loch Ness Project, told the paper: "This is really intriguing. It needs further study."

Sadly, as was the case with the amazing Cardiff Street View ghost, there's always someone keen to torpedo weird and wonderful Google Earth sightings, and other news outlets have suggested that what we have here is actually loch tour boat Ness Express.

Or, possibly, a crashed WWII German bomber? You decide. ®
