Has the Loch Ness Monster retired south to East Anglia?

A story in the Weather Eye column of today's Times caught my eye. Plain bizarre. I include the full story ...

On August 26, at 4am, a teenage driver reported being chased in her car by floating lights as she drove across the Orwell Bridge on the outskirts of Ipswich.

According to a report in the Evening Star, Ipswich, two spinning lights appeared about 3.7m (12ft) above the windscreen, each about the size of an orange, and appeared to be a dull, diffuse sort of light, of no particular colour. The driver who wished to remain unnamed, said: "They definitely seemed to be staying with the car. I've never been so scared."

At about the same time that night, similar mysterious lights were seen by other eyewitnesses just over a mile away in Ipswich.

Perhaps the driver wanted to remain anonymous since they'd been sampling the local East Anglian barley-juice just before it happened! And the other witnesses had spilled out of the same party!

But I'll keep an eye out when I'm driving across the bridge on Tuesday!
