A 45ft sperm whale which became stranded on old Hunstanton beach should be removed by 1pm today.

The creature was pronounced dead last Thursday night after it failed to swim away on the high tide.

It washed ashore on a section of beach belonging to the Le Strange Estate, a mile north of the Le Strange Arms.

The responsibility for removing the whale laid with the estate.

Land agent Jonathan Fryer said: “The condition of the whale was a contributory factor in removing it quickly. It’s good for everybody it’s now being moved. The beach will hopefully be clean and clear again.”
