Can someone identify this?

Saw diving off of Koh Tao Thailand in May, guides said it was a Bryde Whale but weren’t sure + I don’t see a dorsal fin on it !

ID Request (Deceased) Sighting in Hartlepool UK

Myself and my partner were enjoying a morning walk on the beach this morning and came across a very sad sight.

Was curious if anyone here could ID this?

P.S. Has been reported to NHM sightings
