Hundreds of people in Israel are spending their evenings looking for mermaids after a series of ‘sightings’ were reported.

According to the dozens of people who claim to have seen the mermaid – but never had a camera on them at the time – she appears just off the coast at around sunset.

Now the town council of Kiryat Yam, near Haifa, is offering a $1,000,000 reward to anyone who can prove she exists in their waters.

Of course the town says is offering the reward purely for scientific reasons, and not because they hope the odd news might boost tourism.

Those who claim to have seen the mermaid claim she does tricks and jumps out of the water like a dolphin.

The council added that a photograph will count as proof and that there is no need for people try to net the mermaid … cue lots of dodgy photoshopping.
