This was the latest on Saturday from Jon Downes about the Almasty expedition, who posted the following answer-phone message received from Richard:
"Hi Jon, this is Richard. We are in Moscow Airport at the minute - this is just a bit of an update. We have more hair, more dung, and what might be finger bones.We've spoken to, and interviewed, a lot more witnesses; we've staked out an amazing place that was a ruined restaurant that was built like a castle where one of these things is supposed to have scared off a bunch of policemen by screaming. There is loads of stuff on the camera traps, that we're bringing back, though I'm pretty certain most of it will be bats. Okay, I'll try and phone again a bit later on."
Well, the good news as of today is that the team is now back in Britain, and so we should have much more to report now they have returned, along with a wealth of data for analysis.
