It was discovered by Dr Alan Geere and his wife, Carol, while walking near Birling Links on Wednesday morning.

He tweeted: ‘Sad haul on Warkworth beach: a washed up seal, several dead seabirds including a puffin and a dolphin with its fins cut off – who would do that?’

He believes it was ‘no accident’ and said they were ‘horrified’ by the discovery.

Details were sent to public protection at Northumberland County Council.
