Stranded whale dies after rescue
A whale thought to have been one of the 10 rescued from a mass stranding on a Fife beach has died further down the coast.
The creature died after becoming stranded just outside Leith. Details of the death came as tests were being carried out to determine what caused 26 whales to become stranded at Pittenweem on Sunday.
Sixteen of them died and work got under way yesterday to remove the carcases. The remaining 10 were refloated and left that evening.
