Footage of a whale off the east coast has been causing a splash.
The video shows, what appears to be a lone whale, breaching the water and performing several 'tail slaps'.
The whale was caught on camera by fisherman Darren Senior last week - around 15 miles north east of the River Tyne.
ORCA - an organisation that looks out for whales and dolphins off our coast- say they are confident it is a humpback whale.
