A mystery creature has been spotted swimming off the Lowestoft coast.
Ben Darling was walking near Ness point at around 9am today (Thursday, August 23) when he noticed a dark figure in the water.
The 39-year-old plumber said: “As first I just thought it was a buoy it disappeared - then I saw a fin.
“I thought it was a shark - you see a fin and you just think shark. But then I thought ‘not in these waters’.”
Mr Darling, who was with his four-year-old son, watched the mystery figure for around 15 minutes.
He added: “I mentioned the word shark and he got very excited - it was interesting to see but I couldn’t see a head or a tail.
“When I got home I showed my daughters they said it was dolphins, but it could be porpoises.
“All I could see was a black fin.”
