Whale and dolphin 'headcount' under way

A nationwide "headcount" of whales and dolphins is under way and the public are being asked to get involved.

Wildlife charity, Sea Watch Foundation, has organised the annual week-long event.

Steve Truluck told the BBC that more than a dozen different species were spotted last year.

It is hoped that data collected will help build a picture of mammal numbers around the coast.
