Thar she blows!

Apparently there's a whale making its way up the Thames... (I do love the caption on the picture.) It appears to be healthy, and is a toothed whale of some sort:
Liz Sandeman, a marine mammal medic, went out on a boat to examine the animal and said it looked like either a pilot whale or a Risso's dolphin.

After her close encounter with the creature, she said: "It looks quite healthy and quite relaxed. It's breathing normally and its weight seems good.
I don't quite get this quote from the piece.
There was no immediate comment from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott.
Is he now Minister for Whales?

[Update:]


Picture from the BBC story.

I wonder if it'll get to Putney.
