Hundreds of dolphins have been spotted playing in the surf at Spittal beach.

A number of Advertiser readers have reported seeing the “beautiful” site during early morning walks last week.

Former Berwick bobby Derek Hepple, who has recently moved back to the town, saw the pod on Thursday.

“I was walking my dogs at about 6am and I saw loads of dolphins,” he said. “They were jumping and playing like they do in the films. Some were really close to the shore, I stood on the pier and watched them for about half an hour. It was lovely - I was thrilled to bits to see it.”

Commenting on Facebook, Debra Jerdan said: “I watched them on both Friday and Saturday morning. Beautiful sight”

Craig Fletcher added: “There was literally hundreds, I could see them from Highcliffe.”

People who love the Northumberland coast are being urged to take part in beach cleans in the area later this month.

The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) will run beach cleans at Spittal and Beadnell Bay between September 19-22. To find out times and to sign up to the Great British Beach Clean in Northumberland, register at www.mcsuk.org/greatbritishbeachclean or call 01989 567807.
