[…]Not everyone welcomes the insurance deal, though. The official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club took exception to the suggestion that Nessie would attack anyone – however much they splashed.

The club’s chairman, Gary Campbell, said: “Everyone knows she is friendly; she has been present in the loch for centuries and never hurt a soul in all that time.
