Whale Archives - Velos

A 36 ft long humpback whale was found dead in the Thames Estuary early yesterday morning.

After the mammal was found by a passing tugboat near the Isle of Sheppey in Kent the coastguard issued a navigation warning to any vessels in the nearby area, alerting them of the huge floating carcass.

The whale has now been towed away and a post-mortem will be conducted by the Natural History Museum.

This unusual incident illustrates that there are all sorts of hazards out there for sailors, even in the Thames Estuary.
