Stranded whale swims to freedom
A 30ft (9m) whale calf that was stranded on a mud flat off the Lincolnshire coast has been freed.
The calf - believed to be a minke whale - was freed at 14:50 BST.
More than 50 rescuers had been working since 08:00 BST to free the animal, which had two-thirds of its body stuck in mud at Immingham docks.
Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, along with the British Divers Marine Life, Humber Rescue and the RNLI dug a channel to help refloat the animal.
