A dead porpoise has washed up at Aldeburgh beach.
Residents found the marine animal on the beach behind the scallop sculpture at around 7am today (June 10).
Volunteer coordinator for British Divers Marine Life Rescue, Jo Collins, believes it is the same porpoise that washed up on the beach on Monday.

"You should also definitely keep dogs away because they do give off nasty bacteria."
Because the animal is classed as a royal fish — along with whales, dolphins and sturgeon — the Natural History Museum will have to be informed in case their officers want to do a post-mortem.
