Dead Dolphin On Binstead Beach Prompts Coastguard Call-Out

A dead dolphin on a beach in Binstead led to a call-out for coastguard teams.

*Warning: graphic image below*

The mammal washed up on Players Beach.

A member of the public alerted HM Coastguard.

Crews from Bembridge attended at around 4pm yesterday (Wednesday).

They measured the mammal, which had already started to decompose.

Information was then sent to the Natural History Museum — and disposal arranged.
