A 26ft minke whale has been found on a beach in Northumberland.
The whale is alive but struggling in Druridge Bay.
"We have people down there at the moment and a local vet is on her way,
"It is not looking in very good shape and it is incredibly thin.
"We will wait until the vet is down there and then we will take it from there."
