The remains of what looks like a dolphin has washed up an east Norfolk beach.

James Ward and Sarah Moloney found the remains while walking on California beach on Tuesday, just 15 yards from the steps heading towards Caister.

“I have done a little research and I think it could be a young Rossi dolphin,” said James, 24.

“It looks like it would have been about four to five feet long.

“I wasn’t sure who to contact as this is unusual to see. We live in California so we know the area well.”
