Lake 'monster' rivals Loch Ness

September 13, 2010, 11:47 am

England may now have its own mysterious underwater creature lurking beneath its largest lake, and a rival to Scotland's Loch Ness monster.

Sky News reports that 'monster chasers' are the first to use sonar equipment to hunt down an unidentified creature mystifying locals of Lake Wyndermere in England.

There have been seven sightings in the last four years of what is believed to be a long humpbacked animal that has been nicknamed Bow-Nessie.

A local Lake Wyndermere hotel owner Thomas Noblett described his experience with the creature, "All of a sudden I felt something brush past my legs like a giant fish."

"And then I was lifted up by a 3ft wave. I've no idea what it was."

The lake measures over 16km in length and presents a huge task for the 'monster chasers'.

Hunt organiser, Dean Maynard says that there have been more creature sightings at Wyndermere than Loch Ness in recent years, "We think it's time that Bow-Nessie received more attention."

According to reports a local film crew spotted a 20 metre long object below the surface of the lake but sceptics believe the footage shows a wave from an unseen boat.
