Has the Loch Ness Monster been spotted in the River Thames?

Footage allegedly filmed on march 26 and uploaded the day after shows a mysterious object passing the O2 Arena on the surface of the River Thames in London before disappearing underwater, leading some to speculate that the elusive Loch Ness Monster has upped sticks and swum south.

Penn Plate who uploaded the video says on the film description: “This was on the cable car in Greenwich yesterday. something huge was moving under the water and then briefly surfaced. Are there whales in the Thames?? Or is it some weird submarine.”

Many YouTube users have speculated about what the object could be including FINN, who said:

“If you slow it down enough and pause it, kind of looks like a pod of dolphins or porpoises. But there’s still a huge shadow under the water that just looks like one giant sea creature, and it’s way more exciting to think that it’s some crazy undiscovered ancient beast that’s probably going to crawl out of the river and start eating people and toppling buildings, so I’m gonna go with that.”

The last time the Loch Ness Monster appeared on film in the River Thames was during the 1975 episode of Doctor Who, The Terror of the Zygons, but with special effects being what they were back then, there was no chance this encounter would ever have been considered real.
