A quiet stroll turned into a harrowing experience for a Westcountry couple when they found dolphin carcasses washed up on a Devon beach. Gilly Rossetti, who was walking at Soar Mill Cove with husband Geoffrey, on Saturday said: "It's a beautiful beach, but there - among man's rubbish - were two dead dolphins. It was horrendous."
Pieces of fishing net lay near the carcasses, she said.
Keith Makepeace, owner of the nearby Soar Mill Cove Hotel, said more bodies had since been washed up. It was the fourth time this year he had removed carcasses from the beach, he said.
Lindy Hingley, of Brixham Sea Watch, said she was "disgusted" bass pair trawling had not yet been banned.
