A dolphin has been rescued after swimming miles up the River Dee in Flintshire four days ago.
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 before carrying it out to sea, according to the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR).
The dolphin, in the river since Monday, was due to be taken three miles off the coast at Rhyl.
Steve O'Connor, north west co-ordinator from BDMLR, said the rescue went well.
