Whale in the Thames

Concern grows for stranded whale

Rescuers are growing increasingly concerned for the safety of a seven-tonne whale, stranded in the River Thames in central London.

Riverside crowds gathered throughout the day to watch the 16-18ft (5m) northern bottle-nosed whale swim as far upstream as Albert Bridge by Chelsea.

Hope it makes it out alive!

    Sad to see it didn`t make it.Can`t wait for new season to start,as I got
    loads of goodies for christmas.I spent the close season visiting an
    angling website that borders on insanity.(Walton Angling Club}. Check it
    out,especially the notice board!!!!. You`ll see what I mean let me know
    what you think of it.
