A large dead sea creature has washed up on a Sussex beach.

The unidentified carcass, which may be the remains of a humpback whale, was spotted by Jez Asfour at Normans Bay, Pevensey today (Friday, October 7).

Jez, who lives nearby, was walking his dog when he sighted the 30ft creature floating in the waves parallel to the train station. It is currently moving west in the tide.
