Grim task: The body of the whale is prepared before being loaded onto a truck
A large section of coastline in South Africa has been closed after a 15-metre whale washed ashore following an attack by great white sharks. The whale was removed from the surf after its carcass attracted high numbers of great whites to the coast by Muizenberg beach, near Cape Town.
