A family enjoying a new year’s trip has freed a humpback whale it found entangled in fishing nets off the coast of Antofagasta, Chile. Juan Menares said two of his children dived in to free the distressed 10-metre animal on Monday. Menares said: ‘That feeling after doing something good ... fills me with joy, fills me with pride and to be able to do something that I really had never done before.’

    What a great thing to do. Would have been better if the net had not been left in the water in the first place.

    Wales are disgusting creatures that just swim past our debris unless they can't help it.
