People took to social media yesterday morning to report that lots of whales had been spotted off the coast of Lowestoft. Did you see them?

Speaking to this paper, Paul Howard said that “a large pod of whales or porpoises are currently off Pakefield’s beach in Lowestoft.”

He added that crowds were there watching the spectacle. Other posts on Facebook groups confirmed the sighting.

Emma Moore also managed to capture this footage of what she believes could be the whales off Lowestoft’s coast.

However Adam Harper later commented that, in his opinion, there were no whales off the Suffolk coast today.

He said: “It was a sandbank and southerly wind that created the ‘whales’ - combined with poor eyesight and public excitement.”

Do you agree, or did you manage to see the ‘whales’ yesterday morning? Let us know in the comments below.
