Bill Appleton solves Loch Ness monster mystery

A Loch Ness monster hunter from Shipley believes he could finally have helped solve the mystery of what really lurks beneath the water. A computer expert in the US has used advanced techniques to analyse a night-time film Gordon Holmes shot from a layby almost a decade ago. The analyst has now concluded the creature side-winding across the 800ft deep Scottish loch at about 6mph might in fact be a giant eel. Mr Appleton has told leading Loch Ness investigators that Mr Holmes' footage had framed giant eels, concluding: "I believe they display a giant eel side-winding across the loch."
