Legend has it that a huge creature has lived in Scotland's Loch Ness for more than 1,000 years. In the 1930s the questionable rumors became newspaper headlines, making Scotland's second largest loch an international household name. Now, the British government has released previously secret documents that show just how real authorities at the time took the "Nessie" sightings.
Colin Blane is a correspondent for the BBC in Scotland. He tells The Takeaway what the previously top-secret papers show, including a plan considered by ministers and civil servants to put observers around the loch.
