Both the coastguard and representatives from the British Divers Marine Life Rescue tried to save the dolphin.

A spokesman for the coastguard said: “Unfortunately the rescue had a sad ending and the dolphin had to be put down by a local vet as it was simply too unwell. As with the death of all marine life, the Natural History Museum has been informed.”
