Is A Deadly Great White Shark Heading Straight For The U.K.?
SHARK IS COMING!
This is where Lydia has travelled since being tagged off Florida in March 2013.
Here are her movements over the past month, which apparently were enough to prompt fears that she was making a beeline for the beaches of the UK.
OH MY GOD IT'S HEADING STRAIGHT FOR US.
Actually, if you look at what Lydia's been doing this past week, you can see that she's been pretty precisely swimming up the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
In fact, late on Sunday, Lydia did actually take a sudden, sharp turn in the direction of the UK. But only AFTER the articles about her had been published. Clearly, they gave her the idea.
Also, even if Lydia did turn and head straight for the UK, was she ever likely to reach us within two or three days?

Update — Mar. 12, 5:33 p.m. GMT: Uh-oh.
Update — Mar. 14, 11:58 a.m. GMT: Phew.
Update — Jun. 09, 5:19 p.m. GMT: It's been several months since we checked in with Lydia. So... did she ever head for the UK?
