Nessie returns

The tourist season has started at Loch Ness:
LAST Sunday proved a good day for monster spotting with no less than three sightings in eight hours — as many as recorded in the whole of 2002.

Two of the sightings were from the cruise boat Royal Scot and the third was claimed by a fisherman at around 10pm. All were reported in the Fort Augustus area.

And the local response:
Gary Campbell of the Loch Ness Monster Fan Club was happy to hear of so many sightings after a quiet year.

Good news indeed. Make mine a large malt too, Mr Campbell.
