Video of dead mermaid on UK beach goes viral on social media

On Tuesday a person captured what appears to be a dead Mermaid washed up on a beach in Great Yarmouth, UK. 

The body for the mysterious creature created quite a stir on social media when Paul Jones shared the footage on Facebook. reports:

We’re putting our money on it being a seal and with the East Coast having a large colony of grey seals, including the one at Donna Nook, that seems the most plausible answer.

The fin could easily be the seal’s tail and the image that looks like an alien, with an arm, is surely the fin – especially as they have an elbow.
