Amazing new images taken from space appear to show something swimming below the surface of the world’s most famous loch.
There had been fears that Nessie could have died after more than a year without a verified sighting.
But today’s fresh pictures have again peaked the excitement of Nessie enthusiasts everywhere – especially after experts ruled out the possibility it is a sunken ship.
The images were captured by two different amateur hunters scanning different satellites transmitting images of the earth from space – Peter Thain of Newbiggin by the Sea, Northumberland and Andy Dixon from Darlington, County Durham.
The creature was spotted just outside the village of Dores, on the south shore of Loch Ness.
The images were beamed from Apple’s satellite map app and could only be viewed on some ipads and iphones.
Andy said yesterday: “It was purely by accident that I came across the image. I was trawling through satellite transmissions of different parts of the country and I thought I would try Loch Ness.
