Experts sceptical over dolphin blame for killing seal pups

A colony of common seal pups has been found dead in Orkney.

The cause of their fate remains inconclusive but one local councillor has blamed a pod of bottle-nose dolphins which were seen in the area shortly before the remains appeared.

Experts have said there simply is not the proof to say for sure how they died.

BBC Scotland's Fionn McArthur reports from Orkney.
