Last Heard Of
The basking shark can be as large as a bus, but the whereabouts of one of them, last heard of beyond Skye, is giving cause for concern. It had been fitted with a tracking device which signalled that it was close to Glendale. Since then all has gone quiet. The battery has probably failed and, perhaps, become detached. So the search is on for either a washed-up battery or a beached creature or both. The details have been broadcast by the BBC and the public has been asked to assist.
