Pod of pilot whales pop up in Orkney harbour

A pod of pilot whales which caused concern in harbour waters in Orkney has headed back out to sea.

The pod of an estimated 13 whales was beside Hatston Pier in Kirkwall near a visiting cruise liner.

There had been fears that the whales could get distressed and beach themselves, but they left after a couple of hours.
