"As we got closer I saw a fin and realized it was a whale. Some lock keepers hosing him down and it looked like the tide was going up so he could turn around. I realized that the whale might be injured as it started rolling on its side and thrashing about."@twickerati Beached Whale in the Thames. 😞 looks injured. A bit upsetting, so moved on.

"It was almost disbelief and shock to see a whale where you would normally only see ducks and swans," Korsaks said."My next thoughts were I hope it's ok and manages to swim free."Whale at Richmond Lock Bridge 🐋 #riverthames #richmond #whale pic.twitter.com/JhiUSU9pCA

Francesca Farago claims ex Demi Sims 'ordered her to leave London' after splitThe Too Hot to Handle star confessed that although she wanted to remain friends, the exes are not on good terms as she speaks out about the end of their relationship DailyMirror London’s a big place, neither of them would get recognised walking down the street.
The kids were in awe, a fanatic experience for them, and myself. We then rowed on and we’re then just past Chiswick Bridge about 10 minutes later, by the red buoy, and the baby whale 🐳 surfaced again, and it was heading towards Hammersmith. It must have turned around after that. I was coaching 4 juniors at 11am and as we passed Kew Rail bridge heading downriver the whale was thrashing in the shallows on the Surrey bank, which was just after low tide. A kind man with a dog, managed to re float it and it then swam out to where we were on our sculls.
