BRITAIN — Whale watch: A young Minke whale swam down a narrow inlet amongst vegetation, showing scrapes and damage to its tail fin, near Teddington Lock, as efforts to rescue the whale continued, in London on Monday. A Port of London Authority spokesperson said a whale had never been seen this far up the Thames before, 95 miles from its mouth. He said, “It's like seeing a camel at the North Pole.”
