IT ISN’T too of­ten that one can credit climate change with any­thing ben­e­fi­cial, but per­haps river cruise lines in the United King­dom can add bel­uga whale watch­ing tours to its list of at­trac­tions on the River Thames?

The mam­mal’s typ­i­cal home is in the freez­ing cold wa­ters of the Arc­tic or Green­land, how­ever this roam­ing chap - nick­named “Benny” by fas­ci­nated English on­look­ers - is now call­ing Bri­tain home in his far-reach­ing quest to find more fish.

Ma­rine bi­ol­o­gists are mon­i­tor­ing Benny’s health to make sure he is okay, while politi­cians are look­ing into his visa sit­u­a­tion to de­ter­mine if he can stay or should be de­ported.
