Seventh Whale Stranded Off Norfolk Coastline

February 9, 2016

A seventh whale has been reported in shallow water off the coast of Mundesley, Norfolk this morning, February 9.
A member of the Mundesley Coastguard Rescue Team contacted the UK Coastguard just after 10 a.m. this morning to report the whale was 300-400 yards off shore.  The whale, which is the seventh whale in that area, was reported to be alive and thrashing about in the shallow water.
UK Coastguard has alerted Happisburgh and Mundesley Coastguard Rescue Teams who are currently on the shoreline keeping a watchful eye over the position of whale. British Divers Marine Life Rescue, the Zoological Society of London, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s Receiver of Wreck and the local council have also been informed. 
UK Coastguard Mike Puplett said, "We are advising people to keep at a safe distance from the whale, so we do not cause any further distress to it. We are doing all we can to assist the local authorities and allow those with rescue experience to do their work."
