"Crowds gathered on the banks of the Thames to observe the 15ft long mammal, which has been identified by the Natural History Museum as a northern bottle-nosed whale. The whale has become increasingly distressed as it entered waist-high water near Battersea power station. "

'Underground from Vauxhall to Paddington and then take the express to Cardiff'
Finger crossed for the poor old thing.
