Richard Ilderton, of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue, who was called to the stricken creature, said the North Sea was the wrong environment for such a large creature, and any attempt to refloat it – even if it was possible – would have been cruel.
Mr Ilderton said: ‘While we have whales in the North Sea, it is not a suitable environment for a sperm whale because the food supply is not there.
‘It doesn’t eat, it becomes malnourished, it becomes dehydrated because whales do not drink – they get their liquid from their food.
