A HUGE 700 kilo, two-metre long  turtle was found washed up on a beach near Barcelona.

The massive beast, believed to a leatherback turtle, was in an advanced stage of decomposition when it washed up a beach in Calella.

The presence of this species is not common in the Mediterranean although it is the second time in a month that a similar specimen has been found.

A digger was called in to move the turtle so that scientists could perform an  autopsy at the veterinary department at the University of Barclona.
