A 6 foot shark was found washed up at Hive Beach at Burton Bradstock on Boxing Day by one of the local dog walkers. Graham Wiffen from the Cafe told us it was around 150 pounds and about 6 foot long. He told us that it's very unusual and many people came down to take a picture. It was reported to the National Trust and it has since been removed.
