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.
