Dozens of bottlenose dolphins have been spotted off the coast of north Wales.

Although dolphins are not uncommon off the coastline, it's rare to see them so far north. It's believed more and more are swimming north for quieter waters. Many have been spotted as far north at Rhyl and Conwy.

Volunteers for the Sea Watch Foundation have been surveying the area after a number of recent sightings.

A mum from Conwy is celebrating after scooping £1 million in the National Lottery EuroMillions draw – but she only discovered she had won when she found her ticket in her handbag five weeks after the winning numbers were revealed.

Carol Jones, 56, said she had forgotten about her ticket which was at the bottom of her handbag and only realised it was there when she went shopping.

She said: “I just thought I had better check this ticket – I never believed it would be a winner. I thought I would be throwing it in the bin. I actually checked the ticket on my way into work and I don’t think the news really sank in at first – in fact I still don’t think it has!"

She's now planning to retire from her job as a shoe shop assistant.
