An eight-foot whale washed up on the shore of the Thames yesterday, where it was found by a patrol boat under Battersea Bridge.
The minke whale was found on Friday evening at about 10pm by a Port of London Authority boat, but it is not yet known how it got there or why it died.
The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) are set to undertake a postmortem examination to determine the cause of death.
According to Rob Deaville, who leads an investigation project into the stranding of cetacean creatures at the ZSL, the mammal is the 27th minke whale to be washed up in the UK this year.
This is dangerous. I believe humans are affecting the nature too much it’s causing irreparable losses.
