Dolphin still swimming in River Dee in Flintshire

A dolphin which swam miles up the River Dee in Flintshire remains in the area, coastguards have said.

The mammal was spotted by the public in Connah's Quay docks on Monday but swam up river to Saltney, near Chester.

It became stranded briefly on Tuesday afternoon after turning to make its way to Flint and back towards the sea.

But on Wednesday the dolphin was again seen swimming upstream from Saltney Ferry towards Chester and there are concerns it could become stranded.
