Whale up the Thames update

The northern bottlenosed whale lost up the River Thames has been caught near Battersea Bridge in London. A team from British Divers Marine Life Rescue have the whale in a specially constructed pontoon, where it is being examined by two vets. KY Jelly is being used to keep the whale lubricated while its condition is assessed! A barge is waiting to help the 4-tonne, 18-foot whale back to sea if the vets think it is fit enough to survive.
