Whale seen off Bournemouth

Bournemouth cliffs is  a good place to be just now with news of a whale swimming around Poole Bay.

BBC South Today had a live report last night from Branksome Chine.

It seems that the whale is about 30 foot long which is only half the length  of the one washed up at Boscombe in 1897.  That attracted huge crowds.

But with experts suggesting that this new whale may be unwell it could be that we shall have a dead whale washed up again.
