Dolphin lost in the Thames

RESCUERS were last night trying to find a dolphin that was reported to have swum up the Thames.

There have been several sightings of the dolphin - the last in the Chiswick area of West London.
Gavin Parsons, of the British Divers' Marine Life Rescue, said: "They do come up the river, but it's extremely unusual for one to get this far."

In January a whale that got stranded in the Thames died despite a huge rescue operation.
