Nessie at large in The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes
Scientists got a shock today when the underwater robot they were operating Loch Ness discovered a monster. 30 feet long with a slender neck, it certainly looked like the famous beastie that has brought tourists to the loch for over a century, but there's a reason for that. Upon close inspection, it turned out to be a long lost prop made for 1970 film The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes.
The discovery was made by Kongsberg Maritime, a Norwegian company working with VisitScotland to explore the ecology of the loch and find out if it's possible that a real monster could be living there.
The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes was directed by Billy Wilder and stared Robert Stephens as the famous sleuth with Colin Blakely as Dr Watson and Christopher Lee (who himself played Sherlock on three occasions) as Mycroft. The monster prop had been towed out into the water for filming when it unexpectedly sank.
