An underwater robot searching the depths of Loch Ness did the unthinkable; it actually found the Loch Ness Monster. Sort of. What it actually found was a large movie prop of the beast that sank to the bottom of the loch years ago.
The robot, operated by Norwegian company Kongsberg Maritime, is being used to investigate what lies in the depths of Loch Ness.
VisitScotland and Mr Shine's The Loch Ness Project, which gathers scientific information on the loch's ecology and the potential for a monster, is supporting the survey.
Mr Shine told the BBC News Scotland website: "We have found a monster, but not the one many people might have expected.
"The model was built with a neck and two humps and taken alongside a pier for filming of portions of the film in 1969.
"The director did not want the humps and asked that they be removed, despite warnings I suspect from the rest of the production that this would affect its buoyancy.
"And the inevitable happened. The model sank."
