An amateur scientist believes he could have captured the Loch Ness Monster - on videotape.

Tales of Nessie regularly surface, but she is a symbol of Scotland that is so recognised across the globe that when there are any new sightings reported it causes a frenzy.The new footage showing a creature swimming across the loch is already causing a stir.
The footage was taken at the weekend by an amateur scientist who happened to spot a fast-moving creature swimming across the world-famous loch.
Gordon Holmes, from Yorkshire, had been undertaking some scientific tests on the Loch, recording sounds from the deep with special hydrophonic equipment.
