Mystery over whale deaths in Suffolk

The bodies of three whales washed up on the coast of Suffolk over the weekend. One was whale was identified as a minke whale and another as an fin whale.

It is unclear what might have caused their deaths though it was reported that the fin whale may have been struck by a boat, though it is known if this was before or after it died. Minke whales are the most common baleen whale found around the waters of the UK.
