Annu-whale boom in marine sightings

Whale watchers are urging the public to keep their eyes peeled, with a number of sightings in recent days.

The Peel-based Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch says Minke whales were spotted in the sea off Marine Drive this lunchtime.

Last night, a pod of three were seen off the coast at White City in Onchan.

Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch says at this time of year the marine mammals come close inshore to feed as herring are spawning.
