A father and son who picked up a ”smelly rubbery” rock on the beach have put it up for sale for £65,000 – after discovering it could be super rare WHALE VOMIT. Alan Derrick, 67, and his son Tom, 39, went for a stroll along Sand Point in Weston-super-Mare in Somerset when they spotted the grey lump.

Engineer Tom picked up the waxy ‘rock’ and keen fisherman Alan thought it looked like super valuable ‘whale poo’ he had once seen in a newspaper.

They’re lucky Alan had some sense that it was valuable most people would robably ignore a big, waxy blob of something they couldn’t identify!

Tests at home confirmed it could be ambergris – a highly-prized but stinky substance used in the manufacture of perfume. Retired shed fitter Alan said it is weighs 2.5lbs – around half the size of a lump also found near Morecambe which was valued at £120,000 in 2013.
