Fifty-one pilot whales have died after becoming stranded on a beach on the Chatham Islands off New Zealand.The mass stranding means more than 200 whales have died in separate incidents over the past week in the region.

Several dozen managed to refloat themselves but 50 were found dead and one had to be put down.
