Beached whale dies despite rescue effort at Tyninghame, UK

A pilot whale has died after becoming stranded on a beach in East Lothian.

The mammal was put to sleep by a vet after attempts to rescue it from the shore between Dunbar and North Berwick failed.

The British Divers Marine Life Rescue centre and the Scottish SPCA were involved in trying to help the whale.

Its body has been taken from the beach at Tyninghame for a post-mortem examination at the Scottish Agricultural College.
