There are fears French crews fishing off the Cornish coast are catching dolphins and eating them.

It is after one was found with a chunk of flesh missing.

Experts are blaming foreign pair trawlers.

Nick Tregenza is from the Cornwall Wildlife Trust:

"They (dolphins) are really right up there with the great apes and ourselves. You know, they have an idea of self and what other animals have in their mind, which is very, very sophisticated and that's what kind of makes them interesting to watch.

"Porpoises used to be quite common in our estuaries, you know The Fal, The Fowey, The Tamar and so on. We'd really like to see them back in those estuaries, and it is quite a possible thing which could be achieved over the next ten or twenty years."
