Loch Ness Monster to Leave the UK, Confirms The Doing Group


GLASGOW, Scotland, April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

This week, the Home Office have refused to grant residence status to the Loch Ness Monster, leading to fears that the elusive creature will be forced to leave the country.  

Amongst thousands of requests received by the Home Office for permanent residency in the wake of Brexit, one such application was filed on behalf of Nessie by Glasgow-based artists The Doing Group.

However, in a letter dated April 4 the Home Office outlined their rejection of the application on the grounds that it was 'inappropriate', with the administration fee refunded in full. The group are currently considering their next steps, but say that it now looks very likely that Nessie will have to leave the UK.

Hannah Kendaru, 23, a member of the group, said: "We filed the application in good faith.

"However, the process was a difficult one. Nessie has a reputation for being elusive - signatures, passport photos and other information were very difficult to obtain."

Nessie has lived in Scotland for many years, and while her contribution to society is of incredible cultural and financial benefit to the nation, her origins are unclear. Despite several discussions in parliament, no official state recognition of the creature exists.

Irina Glinski, 27, another member of the group said: "We are disappointed by the response from The Home Office.

"We are now in a position where we will have to consider the best course of action for Nessie's future. We have entered discussion with experts about how best to move Nessie in a humane and comfortable way."

The group are appealing for members of the public from across the EU to suggest a new home for the monster.

Individuals and communities are asked to enter their suggested lakes at , along with an accompanying image and information such as temperature and measurements.

Water samples for analysis in comparison with Loch Ness are also welcome.

The group have already received applications from across Europe. Hannah added: "We can see how proud people are of their home lakes. It is heartening to see people eager to help and welcome Nessie into their waters."


The Doing Group are a performance collective based in Glasgow. The project is supported by the Goethe Institut.
