Unfortunately, despite efforts to save the whale spotted in the River Great Ouse at King’s Lynn, the fin whale has died.

The whale is on mud at an inlet on the West Lynn side of the river.

Attempts were made throughout yesterday to guide the whale back into the Wash. 

However, this Your Local Paper footage from last night, showed that the whale was still swimming in the River Great Ouse.

It was still in the river this morning.
