Bessie: the 'Loch Ness' monster of Brighton?

Frank Searle picture claiming to be Nessie

Photographer Frank Searle, born March 18, 1921, lived in a tent beside Loch Ness, hoping to find definite proof that the monster existed.

Unfortunately, his pictures of Nessie started to improve, with increasing detail and close-ups, and a lot of people suspected they were fakes.

The Scottish Sunday Mail eventually exposed Frank in 1976, proving that one photo at least was taken from a postcard of a dinosaur.

Today, Frank's photographs would be a piece of cake…
