A mysterious sea creature was photographed “swimming against the current” on the Devonshire coastline.
Shocked bystanders spotted the unusual animal about half a mile offshore in Plymouth Sound, Devon.
Allan Jones was among those to take snaps of the bizarre creature, which he said resembled a “huge crocodile” – or was it the Loch Ness Monster on holiday?
The university technician said: “It must have been 20ft long.”
“There were other people near me and they were asking if I could tell what it was because it looked so unusual.
“I have never seen anything like it – the first thing that struck me was that it looked just like a huge crocodile.
“The creature moved in circles, appeared to curve its shape and moved a considerable distance from left to right, turn and then move back the other way.”
