First Loch Ness sighting from China reported

The first-ever sighting of the Loch Ness Monster from China has been reported.

Weiming Jiang claims to have spotted Nessie via a webcam in Jiaozhou City, 5,300 miles away from the monster's home in Scotland.

Gary Campbell, recorder of the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, said: "She saw a black dot, then two, very close to the shore.

"They moved on the water for six minutes.

"It is the first accepted sighting we have had from China but just shows you can see Nessie from anywhere in the world."

Campbell has logged 14 sightings of the monster so far this year, including nine by a webcam overlooking the loch.

One sighting came from Matt Reddick in Texas and another came from County Donegal in Ireland.

1,143 sightings of Nessie have been reported over the centuries but the most famous photograph of the legendary monster, taken in 1934, was later exposed as fake.
