Please see the latest statement from Suffolk Coastal regarding the stranded whale at Felixstowe:

Suffolk Coastal Norse has recently received official authorisation from the Marine Management Organisation for the removal of the whale.

The UK Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme (CSIP) have attend site today to take samples for testing.

Now that we have authorisation, removal of the whale is now being coordinated for Wednesday, with specialist equipment being brought in to complete the removal.

Removal will be dependent on tide times and the situation will continue to be assessed on an ongoing basis.
