A sixth sperm whale has died on a British beach, the latest of nearly 30 to have become stranded in shallow waters on the coastline of Europe's North Sea over the past month.Since mid-January, 29 sperm whales have died on beaches in the Netherlands, France, Germany and Britain.Mass strandings of sperm whales are not uncommon in the region historically, with sightings dating back to the 16th century.The latest cause of death will not be determined from tissue samples for some months, and even then, the reason why the whales ended up in the North Sea may never be known, the experts said.
