The minke whale trapped in the London lock has died. The rescuers who initially tried to save the animals put the whale to sleep last night.
The whale entered the lock from the sea. This animal may be lost. The rescuers first managed to release the animal, but shortly afterward, the animal got stuck in the river a bit.
The whale eventually suffered several serious injuries and had almost no swimming power. This is why the nursing staff decided to inject the animal and then put it to sleep.
