‘MINI-MONSTER’ WASHED UP
PARTON residents are baffled by what has been
described as a “mini Loch Ness Monster” washed up
on their beach.
Joan Singleton, from Firth View was strolling on the
foreshore near to where Lowca Beck flows out to sea
when she came upon the “monster”.
She alerted friends, saying she had never seen
anything like it.
Jack Southam, skipper of the Whitehaven sea angling
charterboat Riptide, said on seeing a photograph of
it: “I have never seen anything like this in all my
years at sea.”
Another Parton resident told The Whitehaven News:
“It seems to have a seal’s body, the tail of a
whale, fins on top and sides, but also claws and
really sharp teeth.”
