Breaking News

A museum has a deal with a top bookmaker to display the Loch Ness monster - if the beast is ever caught.

The Natural History Museum has thrashed out an agreement with bookmaker William Hill which would see the monster go on public display.

For more than 20 years, William Hill has been paying the museum a retainer to showcase Nessie's remains in return for verifying her existence.

Documents released by the museum, based in South-West London, show a deal between the two parties was struck in 1987.
