From the SE1 News Page, about the commuter on Hungerford Bridge who initially saw the whale, "The man phoned British Divers Marine Life Rescue to say "Unless I'm hallucinating, I've just seen a whale swimming up the Thames, by Waterloo Bridge
" at 8.30am on Friday morning - thus sparking a two-day rescue effort".
Is it just me, or do most people know to call the British Divers Marine Life Rescue Team when they become aware of a whale related incident in central London? Or did Yellow Pages come up with the suggestion of who best to call (I sense an advertisement opportunity here)? Perhaps he had the number on Speed Dial (Be Prepared)?
