Dead stranding common do,lphin Kingston Gorse

I received a report from Worthing Beach Office that a dead dolphin had been washed ashore at Kingston Gorse near Littlehampton over the weekend.
The remains were taken up to the Zoological Society of London for a post mortem. The photographs were not conclusive (I thought it might possibly have been a long beaked common dolphin - the images had be wide angle and gave an unusual perspective) but it was confirmed to be a short beaked common dolphin.
