Whale washed up on Beadnell Beach

A TEN-metre long sperm whale has died ater becoming stranded on rocks between Beadnell and Seahouses on Monday.
The mammal, which experts think weighed about 20 tonnes, is thought to have suffered dehydration after losing its way. The British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) said the whale was alive for a time, but could not be saved as the tide was going out. Sperm whales are the deepest diving mammal and the largest toothed of all whales, feeding on squid and other large deep water fish. They can grow up to 18 metres in length and weigh up to 50 tonnes.
