  • Footage appears to show a look-a-like of the Loch Ness monster in Gloucester, England
  • It shows what looks like a long-necked figure wading in the water

A man from Gloucester, England allegedly captured a footage of a “Loch Ness Monster” wading through a canal.

Josh Hawkins, 25, reportedly captured the video from an apartment window overlooking the water, which shows what seems to be a long-necked figure making ripples in the River Severn.

“I was watching the FA Cup final and I looked out the window and saw it,” he said via IB Times. “It looked like it was moving.”

“I thought it looked like the Loch Ness monster,” he added.

Hawkins called his friends and asked them to help him identify the strange moving object.

“We all just had the same idea – that it looked like the Loch Ness monster. It could be a relative.”

Of course skeptics believe that the Loch Ness Monster does not exist and these sightings are usually just objects or props.
