Italian coastguard rescue a sperm whale from a fishing net off the coast of Lipari, Italy
Italian divers freed a whale trapped in a tangled fishing net off the coast of Lipari on June 26.
Biologists working at a turtle recovery centre nearby alerted the coastguard to the trapped sperm whale and divers were sent to the scene.
Using cutters and knives they sliced through the illegal net and freed the whale which then swam off apparently unharmed to join three others which were monitored nearby.
