A ninth recorded sighting of the Loch Ness Monster this year has been made with a tourist from Liverpool catching a brief glimpse.

Retired delivery driver Colin Veacock, 55, from Aintree, was scanning the Lock Ness with his binoculars near Urquhart Castle when he saw something in the water about two-thirds across.

Gary Campbell, keeper of the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, who has officially accepted the sighting on record said that Colin initially thought the unidentified swimming object was a “foot high and some five foot long”.

However he then later reassessed the size at “two foot high and ten to twelve feet long” instead, reports The Mirror.

Colin was even able to sketch out a photo what he saw which really helps to bring the sighting to life.

The eighth glimpse of Nessie was registered on July 19 by a man and his daughter, with Colin’s sighting coming just 11 days later on July 30.

Gary Cambell said: “They said a cruise boat had passed some 20 minutes earlier but that there was no boat activity at the time of the sighting.”
