Can you help identify these strange grub like creatures which have washed up on Exmouth beach?

The creatures were first seen by Marie Gibson-Coathup while she was walking her dog on the beach earlier today.

The Journal contacted Marie for more information, she said: “They are very strange; I even asked a few people if they knew what they were but nobody had a clue.

“The seagulls loved them and more were washed up past the lifeboat station towards Orcombe Point. I was walking with my dog and he wasn’t interested in them, thank goodness. No other dogs seemed to be either.

“They were a bit rubbery, I touched one with my foot, shoe on, and some seemed to have a black bit in them.”

Marie estimates around 1,000 of the strange grub-like creatures have washed up near the lifeboat station.
