Skegness dead whale 'a sad sight', say locals

People have gathered in Skegness to look at a dead whale which was washed ashore on Saturday.

The sperm whale has a large gash on its side and had already died before it washed up on the beach.

Officials hope the whale can be rolled onto a vehicle and taken away, to avoid cutting it up on the beach.
