A sea monster filmed swimming off the Lincolnshire coast has been revealed as a television hoax designed to bring tourists “flooding back in”.
Footage of the Skegness Monster was viewed more than a million times on YouTube and featured in several newspapers in August.
But the fake monster, operated by divers, was made for James May’s Man Lab on BBC Two.
If you don’t know who James May is then count yourself lucky; he is a foppish twit.
I’ve not seen the video or heard of it before.
