I wasn't aware of the crabs washing up on South coast of England it was pretty much a non event not even getting a mention in any national newspaper or UK major news broadcasts.

However after delving into it, the crabs died of hypothermia normal UK temperatures are quite mild in December, however it was the coldest ever December on record in the UK with average temperature around -1c and as the waters are really cold in the UK in December they would have been even colder still. So the crabs literally froze to death.
