A porpoise has been found washed up on a Suffolk beach. 

The marine animal was found on Felixstowe beach on Friday by a walker. 

Alison Sheeran was walking her dog near the beach when she spotted the creature. 

"I posted a picture on Felixstowe residents Facebook page because I knew someone would know who to report it as there have been others recently," said Ms Sheeran. 

"Within minutes the coastguard had seen my post and contacted me for a location, which was easy to give them."

It is not clear what caused the porpoise to end up on the beach. 

The porpoise was later dealt with by Felixstowe Coastguard.
