    Mystery Over New Nessie Sighting
    A couple enjoying a romantic weekend in the Highlands believe they may have had a close encounter with the Loch Ness Monster. Experts are now investigating this latest photograph, which was taken by accident, to establish if it is in fact the Loch's most famous resident. Ian Monckton, from Solihull, took his fiance Tracey Gordon to a cottage in Invermoriston near the loch, to celebrate her 30th birthday. On their way back to the village at around 11pm they pulled into a lay-by. The drivers window was wound down and before the couple stopped their car they heard a commotion in the water. Using the car headlights and the flash from his camera to check their footing on the rocky shores of the loch, Ian unwittingly recorded the above picture which he hopes could be the elusive monster.
    "There is clearly a very large shape in the water that looks aquatic a few metres out from where I was standing and you just see the tips of the trees lower down the slope to the loch in the photo," said Ian. "Myself and Tracey were always quite sceptical about Nessie but after having this experience I would say we now have a very open mind on the matter. "It was the highlight of our trip. We'll definitely be back and we are struggling to get an explanation for what we caught on camera." Ian said the picture was taken from a small cliff overlooking the loch. But it was only when they got back to their country retreat and checked the images they realised the significance of what they had on their digital camera. Ian said it was his first visit to Loch Ness and the weather was reasonably clear with only a light breeze. "We decided to get away for a few days to celebrate Tracey's birthday and because it was off season we headed up to Drumnadrochit for a meal. "On our way back we stopped off at Urquhart Castle to take a few photos, but the lights that illuminate the castle were turned off, so there were no photo opportunities there.
    "Then we pulled over at a parking point to let a car pass, as my fiance doesn't drive as fast as the locals in the dark. "I had the passenger window open as I was smoking at the time and as we pulled into the lay-by there was a rustling and a splash. It sounded as if a Mini had landed in the water. That's how loud it was. "We both looked at each other and I said "What the hell was that"? It wasn't a small splash like a piece of debris or a stone falling into the loch. It sounded like a car or a motorbike had rolled into the loch. "I got out of the car and walked to the edge using the light from the car headlights to see where the edge of the loch dropped away and taking snaps with the camera so the flash let me see where to tread." The couple called out to see if anyone was there, or in trouble in the loch but couldn't hear anything apart from the water splashing around the loch. "After a while we continued back to Homewood, both wondering what the hell we had heard and joking about Nessie," Ian added. "However, when we looked back at the photos I had taken up to we genuinely believe there is something in this, there is clearly a very large shape in the water that looks aquatic a few metres out from where I was standing and you just see the slope of the loch in the photo."

  • Read the title and first sentence of the story summary below. What is an Indian chief? What do you know about the Indians of the 1700s?
    Read the introduction and story summary below. What was the connection between Chief Cornstalk and the Mothman?

    The story of Chief Cornstalk
    Chief Cornstalk was an Indian chief who lived in the Point Pleasant area in the 1700s. One day, the chief decided to make peace with the white soldiers. But when he went to their fort with a peace party, the soldiers put him in prison. While Chief Cornstalk was in prison, Indians killed a white man somewhere near the fort. Chief Cornstalk didn't have anything to do with the murder, but shocked and angry soldiers entered the prison and killed him.
    As he was dying, the Chief put a 200-year curse on Point Pleasant.
    Chief Cornstalk died in 1777, and for two hundred years, it seemed like Point Pleasant really was cursed. Tragedy after tragedy hit the area until 1978 — the year that the curse ended. Some of the tragedies were the result of natural disasters like floods and tornadoes. There were also fires and explosions and terrible accidents. So when the Mothman appeared and Silver Bridge collapsed, some terrified people believed it was part of the curse. Was the Mothman part of the curse? Did it cause the collapse or did it come to warn people about it? One thing is certain — the fascinating legend of Chief Cornstalk and the Mothman mystery will live on for generations.
