Could this be a baby Orca?

Hi All,

 

I registered because this Saturday (03rd August 2013) I went to the beach just south of Hornsea, Bridlington and found the carcass shown in the attached images.

 

Approx length: 1.2 to 1.8 meters

 

I can't tell what this is, and I haven't seen anything remotely similar other than an Orca.... it's the teeth and "snout" that lead me to this more than the colouring, although it is certainly remeniscant in colouring alone.

 

I took a few photos but didn't think to check whether it had a blowhole or not, which would have helped I know. It was pretty macabre though so didn't want to spend too long fascianting over it.

 

Sadly most of the face has been eaten and was just a pool of bloody liquids, but I do hope there's enough here to identify...

 

I do hope someone can help me find out what this poor creature was
