|Whale body taken to storage depot |
(about 6 hours later)
A dead minke whale thought to have been stranded in the Bristol Channel has been moved from a south Wales beach.
The Vale of Glamorgan council says the whale has now been taken to a storage depot while officials take advice on what to do with the body.
The 33ft (10m) creature brought many onlookers to the Knap at Barry, Vale of Glamorgan on Tuesday.
The body of the whale was then washed out by the tide, before once again becoming lodged on rocks.
