The carcass of a young hump back whale has washed up on Alkimos Beach.

The whale is believed to be the same animal that was being trailed by a shark last week.

A four-metre great white was spotted circling a whale close to shore on May 1.

Beaches were closed as the shark, which was swimming close to a six-metre whale, swam north from City Beach.

The shark and whale were spotted the day after drumlines set one kilometre off the coast were removed.

A large shark was seen following a whale last week.
