BBC: Final chapter for beached whale
The body of a 60ft fin whale washed up on mudflats in south Wales will be cut up before being removed.
Hundreds of people have visited the shore at St Brides in West Usk to see the carcass after it was discovered by a man walking his dog on Thursday.
The whale will be moved further up the beach on Saturday morning to a more accessible site before disposal. Work will start at 0600 BST on Saturday, when the whale will be moved further up the mudflats. Contractors will dismember the carcass before it is put on to trucks and then taken away for incineration.
The fin whale is the second largest animal in the world, behind the blue whale, and is an endangered species.
