Dead whale to fuel power station


The body of a whale which washed up on the coast by Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan will be used to provide fuel for power stations.

The 33ft minke whale was removed from Barry by crane and stored at a car recovery firm in Cardiff before it will make its final journey to Somerset.
