Cant believe the amount of resources invested in the whale coverage – even bringing Her Royal Queeness Burley out on her weekend off. And I wonder just how much noise the helicopter produced hovering the whole time and wonder how much it added to the whales’ distress. Are we going to get wall to wall coverage for a week if the whale dies?? or maybe live pictures from the autopsy – exclusive to Sky News ?
Lots of presenters and reporters around London today.
Jonathan Samuels: In Central London for most of the day, now in Tilbury near the Estuary.
Victoria Bryning: On package from Central London
Alex Rossi: On package from Central London
Kay Burley: Was in Central London, now in Canvey Island
Steve Dixon: On the phone from East London.
Ursula Errington: On the phone from Putney Bridge, broke news of a dead porpoise.
Martin Stanford: Live solo from 10-5, joined now by Juliette Foster.
The Skycopter has been above proceedings all day, with only refuelling breaks.
I think today’s coverage has been fantastic. It’s all everyone here has talked about and as usual, Sky News are right on the button. People here have been following this all day long and the only channel we’ve watched is Sky News. At each turn, they beat BBC News 24 to the latest updates. Kudos.
The Skycopter was sufficiently far away as to cause no distress to the mammal at all, as they have repeated numerous times throughout the day.

You poor sad soul….get real.
Apparently just announced that the whale has died (along with the 1,200 kids world-wide who have starved to death whilst this ‘saga’ has been unfolding)
Maybe you should take your argument up with whoever decided to pay for the dedicated 12 hours and hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of uninterrupted outside broadcast footage, not me. I’m a mere viewer who thought they did a good job.
