The dolphins snapped swimming at Cornwall's busiest beaches spark a protection warning.

Groups have been snapped coming in close at Gwithian and Fistral.

Cornwall Wildlife Trust is urging us to report sightings.

Spokeswoman Abbey Crosby says they are breathtaking, she said: "Some types of dolphins, like our bottle nose dolphins will reside really close to the cliffs, and that does sometimes surprise people, they are big dolphins, they are playful. they are intelligent, we are so lucky to see them and have them in our waters.

"They are intelligent animals, they do like to interact at points with people, you will find them following boats, some investigating kayakers, however it must be on their terms."

You can see the code of conduct on what to do if the animals approach you here.
