November 27th, 2015 (Grimsby telegraph). The 30ft dead minke whale (Ed Sibylline : fin whale) that washed up on Cleethorpes beach has been swept away by the overnight tide.

The huge carcass was confirmed as no longer on the beach by beach safety officials, who conducted a full search of the coastline when the tide was at its lowest point at around 12.30pm today.

As reported, the 30ft whale was found about a mile out from the Brighton slipway yesterday morning.

Beach officials warned that part of the beach might have to be closed off if the whale was still there, but the beach is open as usual.
