    Wouldn’t be surprised if Jeremy is on the Thames for Live at 5.

    I don’t understand the intensive coverage of the whale in London by Sky NEWS.

    It seems such very detailed coverage is suitable for National Geographic channel .

    Do we live in world where this is the sole news item ?

    The BBC have no pictures of the Whale being lifted on to the barge.

    It could be the case that Allan and Co-presenter was asked not to come in or Allan and Co-presenter would’ve already been in Sky Centre and was just sent home.

    … and to be fair to N24 – Sky have no live pictures of the Whale being escorted through East London.

    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.

    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 ?

    Had this whale turned up in any other City than London it would have been about item 23 on the ‘national’ news.

    As ever, any event within the M25 stockade automatically triggers instant over-reaction together with peurile and inaccurate assumption masquerading as ‘reporting’.

    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)

    An all time low, even by London media standards.

    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.
