Norfolk humpback whale: The search for sightings

A humpback whale has been sighted off the coast in Norfolk for the first time, experts say.

It was seen in Hemsby on Tuesday morning by marine scientists Ryan Irvine and Tabitha Pearman.

Then it was spotted in Winterton and Sea Palling.

Since then, people have flocked to the coast in the hope of catching a glimpse of the mammal.

Mike Liggins toured the area to see if he could find the whale.
