A minke whale washed up at Wemyss Bay beach today. Sadly it appears the whale has not survived, the Largs and Millport has reported.
A Coastguard spokesman said, "The whale has been on the shore there for a few hours. Inverclyde Council are dealing with the clearing up operation. Initial reports suggested that the whale had died and was drifting in the water. We had been keeping an eye on it, and the matter has now been handed over to Inverclyde Council."
