Judith Oakley says she wandered around remote Pwll Du Bay in disbelief, "There were dead small sharks strewn across the strandline, sand and amongst the rocks. I counted 55 and have never seen such a terrible image on a Gower shore, and such a tragic death for these incredible animals."

The Swansea Evening Post says strollers near Bishopston were confronted with the scene on Saturday morning. One person said some were more than 2ft long.

The paper says a spokeswoman for the Welsh Government said it was not "not the first time there has been a mass stranding of this type (of fish) on Gower."

A dog was rescued by the RNLI yesterday after it had fallen from the cliffs and into the water at Mewslade Bay on the Gower.

Crews were alerted to the incident at around 6:30pm yesterday evening after they could see the dog swimming in the water, unable to climb back up onto the cliffs.

A lifeboat had to be launched and one crew member was put ashore to rescue the dog, whose owner was standing at the top of the cliffs.

The dog was not harmed in the incident and was later reunited with its owner who was very emotional and extremely grateful to the crew for saving his pet.
