Beached dolphin driven back to safety

A beached dolphin was saved by a team of rescuers who released it back into the sea, after driving it to safety.

The mammal could not be put back into the water where it had washed up because of heavy seas, so it was driven 11km (seven miles) to Carbis Bay, Cornwall, on a trailer.

'He stayed around just long enough to say “thanks for the ride” then he was away,' said volunteer rescuer Dave Jarvis.
