Lochness Monster spotted off Skegness, or was it just 2-3 basking sharks ?


London resident Rebecca Clarke was visiting friends in Skegness, England, when she saw this strange sight, initially thinking it was just rubbish floating in the water, but on further inspection deciding it may be some creature. See Arbroath

She said: “It might seem silly but I thought it looked rather reptilian, like a crocodile or a dragon as the fins seemed more rigid than they do on sharks.” Skegness RNLI coxswain John Irving was intrigued by the footage of the creature, which he felt could either be a killer whale or a basking shark.

Here is footage of a basking shark spotted near White Horse Beach in Plymouth, MA. You decide.
