Dolphins spotted off Roker Beach at Sunderland

At least eight dolphins have been spotted off the coast of Roker Beach in Sunderland.

ITV Tyne Tees Twitter follower Nathan Askew tweeted us a picture and then emailed us this clip of one of the dolphins emerging briefly from the North Sea.

Nathan said: "The sea around Roker Pier was covered with dolphins."

Dolphins have been spotted off the coast of Roker before but it's a very rare occurrence.
