An RNLI member has described how a stranded dolphin was rescued after getting stranded in the River Dee in Flintshire.
The grey and white mammal became stuck on sandbanks on Thursday at Saltney Ferry, near Chester.
An RNLI lifeboat hoisted the dolphin out of the water and is carrying it out to sea.
Alan Forrester, lifeboat operations manager with Flint RNLI, told Jason Mohammad on Radio Wales the rescue boat was launched at Connah's Quay after the dolphin was seen "floundering" on a sandbank.
