On This Day: the Loch Ness Monster

On this day in 2003, the BBC reported (presumably with a straight face) that, despite cneturies of sightings, there was no monster in Loch Ness. This followed an investigation utilising 600 separate sonar beams and satellite navigation technology to ensure that every part of the loch was covered.

Bad news for cryptozoologists, conspiracy theorists and small children everywhere.  Good news for SF writers free to let their imagination loose?
