shark that ever lived – ate sperm whales for breakfast.The iconic beast, that became extinct three millions years ago due to global cooling, was three-and-a-half times bigger than a great white shark, measuring up to 65ft long and weighing more than 50 tons.And, now, scientists have deduced through new fossil findings that Megalodon would regularly rip off a sperm whale's head by biting through the flesh with its seven-inch serrated teeth.READ MORE: Bodybuilding twins jumped from tower block window in tragic 'suicide pact'The huge and powerful sea monster was attracted by the whale's huge nose which accounts for a third of its body.Packed with oily saturated fats, the snout's tissue would have represented the Megalodon's most nourishing food.The study went on to indicate that the legendary predator also attacked another prehistoric sea monster Leviathan melvillei, which was named after the author of Moby Dick – Herman Melville.The findings are based on seven-million-year-old fossilised sperm whale skulls from the coastal desert of southern Peru.Lead author Aldo Benites-Palomino, a palaeontology student at the University of Zurich, said: "Most of the bite marks have been found on the bones that would be adjacent to these soft tissue structures, such as the jaws, or around the eye, thus indicating that sharks actively targeted this region."The sharks ranged from Megalodon to species still around today including mako sharks, sand sharks and the great white.To stay up to date with all the latest news, make sure you sign up to one of our newsletters here.Half a dozen skulls were unearthed at the Pisco Formation in the Ica Desert – a world-renowned site.It is famous for a treasure trove of Miocene-era shark and ray remains,
Huge blaze at high rise flats near Grenfell Tower as 60 firefighters on the scene
Fire crews are attending a huge blaze at a block of high rise flats on Queensdale Crescent in Shepherds Bush, London.According to the London Fire Brigade, half of a flat on the 12th floor is "alight".Eight fire engines and 60 firefighters are currently attending the scene, the organisation tweeted.They added: "We've taken over thirty 999 calls to the fire in W11."We were able to use '9Eye' which enabled a caller to show our control officers live images of the scene."The emergency services were called at 9.23am, and the cause of the fire is not yet known.The Conservative MP for Kensington, Felicity Buchanan, tweeted: "Very concerning to hear about the high rise fire at Queensdale Crescent in Shepherds Bush."I am told by @LondonFire that 8 fire engines are there, 60 firefighters and a 32mm aerial appliance."A 64mm one has been called."Ariel appliances are used to fight fires in tall blocks of flats when traditional fire fighting equipment is unable to reach it.No injuries have been reported so far, but a BBC Radio London video shows thick black soot covering the window area, and around five or six floor above the flat where the fire started.According to My London, one woman called Joanna took pictures of the fire.She wrote on social media: "In West London and saw this and heard sirens."Getting closer it seems a different building than the [Grenfell] Tower is on fire."No less horrific for those affected and has made me feel physically sick.
