At 3.50pm on Friday February 14, a Fin whale of approximately 60ft in length became stranded on rocks at Nare Point on The Lizard. The whale is dead.
Members of the public are advised not to attend the privately owned beach, due to the possibility the road network could become severely congested, causing long delays in the locale. Consideration should also be given to the safety aspects surrounding the rapid decomposition of the whale’s body.
