Whale causes a splash off the North East Coast

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.

Humpbacks are sometimes spotted in the North Sea, with the majority of sightings happening between May and September.
