Rescuers search for sperm whale in Scottish loch

A rescue team is searching the waters of a Scottish sea loch for a young sperm whale that has been seen in the area over the past few days.

There were concerns that the whale might be entangled in a rope in Loch Eriboll on Scotland’s north coast, near the village of Durness.

A social media post from British Divers Marine Life Rescue on Friday morning said the team was still searching for the nine-metre whale. The loch is 10 miles (16km) long.

Sperm whales usually inhabit deep offshore waters so it is not clear why the whale entered the loch. Two years ago, a humpback whale was rescued after becoming entangled in fishing gear in the same loch.
