The remains of a whale lodged on the front of a cargo ship have been removed. A pilot boat spotted the dead whale trapped on the bow of the Cote d’Ivoirian Star in the Solent on Monday. The ship was escorted into Portsmouth.
The 20m-long mammal, was lifted off with a crane and taken to a specialist plant where it will be examined. Portsmouth’s harbour master Ben McInnes said it had been a “sad” operation.
