A Northern Whale In London...

Barge carrying the Northern Bottle-nosed Whale

A bottle-nosed whale lost its way , and somehow ended up in the Thames River in central London yesterday. It was there for over twenty-four hours, and seemed to be getting more and more disoriented, so today, rescuers decided to intervene. The magnificent mammal is currently on a barge on the way back to the sea.

Godspeed Mr Whale, and I hope you get well soon. I'm sure you'll be with your family again in no time at all...

The whale has died. I’m absolutely gutted.
