Video: whale, 25 feet long, found stuck to bow of car transporter

A boat crew has recovered the body of a whale in Sheerness docks in Kent. The 25-foot fin whale had been stuck to the bow of a 49,000 ton car transporter. It took an hour to tow the mammal before it was landed in the docks. An autopsy will now be carried out. Medway Marine worker Jack Smedley - who took the video - said it is the biggest whale ever to be recovered in the area.
