Stranded dolphin being helped by specialists at Freshwater

A DOLPHIN has got stuck on the banks of the River Yar this morning — and a specialist mud rescue team has been sent to assist.

Solent Coastguard has asked Needles and Ventnor Coastguard Rescue Team and the British Marine Life Rescue to help.

A spokesperson for Solent Coastguard said: “There were concerns the public might try to help, so we are there for scene safety.

“The dolphin is alone and doesn’t have any friends with it at the moment, but the tide is coming in and we are hoping it will soon be freed.”
