British officials are checking out reports that a beluga whale is swimming in the River Thames.

Posting the shocking clip on Twitter, he said: 'Can't believe I'm writing this, no joke - beluga in the Thames off Coalhouse Fort.

Speaking on Tuesday afternoon, he said that it had "roughly stayed in the same spot for about an hour".

Beluga whales, which are easily identifiable by their white markings, usually inhabit the cold Arctic waters off Greenland, Svalbard and the Barents Sea.

"He or she is obviously very lost and quite possibly in trouble".

"We would urge that the whale is given space and disturbance is kept to a minimum", he said.

The RSPCA animal welfare group said that it was "working with other agencies to monitor the situation" and sent researchers to the scene.

Photos posted on Twitter appeared to show a white whale in the water.

"The beluga is an Arctic/sub-Arctic species, so is a long way outside its usual range of distribution".

Known as the "canary of the sea" due to their chirps, clicks and whistles, beluga whales can range from 13 ft to 20 ft in length and have distinctive round foreheads, known as "melons". They have a rounded forehead and no dorsal fin.

Male beluga can grow up to 18ft (5.5m) in length and weight up to 3,530lb (1,600kg).

This sea creature made a whale of a trip.

Beluga calls variously resemble a cork being prized from a bottle or a creaking door, along with sounds described as clicks, squeaks, chirps, bleats, moans, groans, and whistles.
