THIS video appears to show a look-a-like of the Loch Ness monster 500 miles away - in a canal in Gloucester.

This footage, filmed from a flat above a canal, features a long neck protruding from the water.

Josh Hawkins, 25, who filmed the footage, said: “I was watching the FA Cup final and I looked out the window and saw it.

“It looked like it was moving. I thought it looked like the Loch Ness monster.”

The IT worker called his friends over to see if they could identify the mysterious creature.

Josh added: “We were asking each other what we thought it could be. We all just had the same idea - that it looked like the Loch Ness monster.It could be a relative.”

And another twitter user took the bait, saying: “Perhaps it feeds on the fish and elvers around the area where the River Severn meets Gloucester Docks #monster #nessie #gloucester #monster #mystery.”
