Dolphins in peril saved; RESCUE.

A STRANDED dolphin and her calf were saved after getting stuck on a sandbank.

Divers, vets and residents managed to free the stricken creatures who had swam up Frenchman's Creek, off the Helford River, in Cornwall.

They had been beached for about three hours and it had been feared the mother was too ill to be saved - which would have meant having to put down her baby calf.

Rescue organiser Dave Jarvis said: "Fortunately the vet said the mother was well enough and they were last seen swimming out to sea."
