A "lost" sperm whale which died after stranding in the Highlands may have had a brain problem, a post-mortem examination has found. The mammal was spotted on Tuesday morning in the Moray Firth near the village of Ardersier, in the Highlands. It was buried on Wednesday after it was moved to farmland to minimise public health concerns, Highland Council said.

The animal was first spotted, on the Moray Firth shore near Ardersier, earlier this morning and witnesses feared the worst as it appeared injured and the tide was going out. Charlie Phillips, a field officer with Whale and Dolphin Conservation WDC , has just arrived at the scene and he said he thought the creature was dead because it was not moving. He said: "It has live stranded on the beach just before you come into the village properly.
