A FORMER Royal Navy commander believes that the Loch Ness monster savaged a war ship.

Vivian Owers was commanding one of eight ships on manoeuvres on Loch Ness when one was damaged by an unidentified object in 1944.

Military secrecy laws stopped Mr Owers, 77, talking about the incident for 50 years, but he is still convinced the 112ft vessel was attacked by Nessie.

Yesterday Mr Owers, of Aberdour, Fife said: "Once we got back for repairs we realised that two of the propeller blades had been lost but the third, along with the rudder post, was still in tact showing no sign of damage.

"The vessel was travelling down the middle of the loch and couldn't have snagged on anything."

"There were no logs in the water and our only feasible explanation was that it must have been the monster."
