Strange Object Enters Loch Ness.

Ignoring the many possible jokes this headline conjures up this is in fact a genuine story.

Well ‘genuine’ in the sense that witnesses reported a strange object fall from the night sky into Loch Ness last Saturday evening which resulted in emergency services conducting a futile three hour search for the object.

A report on BBC Scotland’s website states:

The emergency services undertook a night-time search of Loch Ness after reports a balloon-like object had fallen from the sky. The police, coastguard, lifeboat and an RAF search and rescue helicopter scoured the area but found nothing. The alarm was raised at 20:00 on Saturday after members of the public said they saw a blue object fall on the south of the Loch, near Dores.
