A dead baby porpoise has washed up at Felixstowe beach. 

The porpoise was spotted by walkers along the beach near Mannings Amusements at about 8pm last night (June 24). 

The porpoise appeared to have large wounds across its skin.

The deceased animal was reported to the council but it is understood that the porpoise was eventually carried out to sea again by the tide. 

It comes after a 10-metre whale was brought in at Felixstowe earlier this month.
