Forty-four stranded pilot whales have been returned to open water after a mass beaching in the Scottish Highlands, The Independent reports.
Medics from British Divers Marine Life Rescue joined the coastguard and navy working through the night to right whales that stranded on their sides or backs, or on top of each other, before the morning tide.
Sadly 25 whales from the pod died at the Kyle of Durness, a tragic echo of last autumn's mass stranding in Donegal, where 33 whales were lost.
