£1 million to find the Loch Ness Monster
UK Bookmaker William Hill is offering a staggering £1 million reward to anyone that finds proof that the Loch Ness Monster actually exists.
William Hill have teamed up with the organisers of next weekend’s Rock Ness music festival and are supplying up to 50,000 cameras to festival goers. If anyone believes they catch the fabled creature on camera, they must satisfy the Natural History Museum that the Loch Ness Monster really exists.
"We are hoping the £1 million bounty will help to solve one of the great enigmas of modern times,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
"This is a great opportunity with such huge crowds on the shores of Loch Ness and it will be fantastic if someone can get a picture with one of the thousands of Nessie-Snappers cameras we are handing out, that can rival the 'Surgeon's photograph', which is still the most recognised despite being taken over 50 years ago."
However, if no proof is found (which they deem unlikely as they offer odds of 250-1 of it happening in 2007), Hill’s are also offering consolation prizes including £1000 and a free £250 bet for the best staged photographic evidence.
The festival kicks off at Dores, near Inverness, on June 9 and will feature Welsh rockers the Manic Street Preachers, R&B diva Kelis and dance DJ Fatboy Slim.
