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."
