Whale found dead in Humber

A 40ft whale has been found dead, washed upstream in the Humber Estuary. Its most likely a Sperm whale which are deep diving mammals who feed mainly on squid which are also a source of fluids for them. The North Sea doesn't contain a lot of squid, so its been suggested by Marine life Rescue that whales can become dehydrated in this area and occasionally die. Sadly stranded or dead whales are found on the east coast from time to time, its such a shame we only get to see them in this state rather than breaching close to the surf line up.
