Three dead whales washed up on Suffolk beaches

A third dead whale has been found by experts investigating the deaths of two others found along the Suffolk coast. A 30ft (9m) decomposed whale washed up on the beach at Felixstowe on Sunday and the body of a minke whale was spotted near Orford on Saturday. Scientists from the Cetaceans Strandings Investigation Programme (CSIP) say there is now a third dead whale off the coast. They do not think the deaths are linked. The third whale floating off the Suffolk coast is thought to be a sperm whale, Rob Deaville, from CSIP, said.
