A dead whale has been found on the shore of Öffersey in Northwest Iceland, reportsRÚV

The 7-8 metre long humpback whale was found by Bogi Kristinn Magnusen who said that it was uncertain how long the body had been on the beach for. 

He added that a considerable smell was already coming off the carcass and that it would only get worse but that the birds would likely be happy about that.
