The body of the injured fin whale stranded in the River Great Ouse at King’s Lynn has been buried.

The whale was spotted last Thursday morning swimming in the river and despite attempts to coax it to sea, it was back in the river on Friday when it later died. 

Experts carried out tests before its body was buried on land last Saturday.
