This video sent in from the Sea Watch Foundation shows a pod of dolphins enjoying the water off the coast of north Wales. The pod of around 20 bottlenose dolphins was spotted off Kimnel Bay.
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.
Homes and businesses effected by a burst water main in Rhyl should have their supply returned this afternoon, Welsh Water says.
Customers in Rhyl, Kinmel and Abergele are currently without water, after a burst on a key water main in Rhyl.
We were alerted this morning to a burst on a key water main in Rhyl. We immediately sent a team to the site and are now carrying out an emergency repair. This is impacting on water supplies to customers in Rhyl, Kinmel and the Abergele areas and we apologise for any inconvenience.
It is estimated that water supplies will begin returning to normal later this afternoon whilst we undertake the repair. This may result in discoloured water for a period of time. This is not unusual after an incident of this nature and should clear within a short period of time. We would like to assure customers we are working as quickly as possible to restore supplies to normal.

The Mayor of Rhyl has said he was "gobsmacked" after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge donated £5,000 to help flood victims in North Wales.
Andrew Rutherford revealed on Facebook that the royal couple had made the donation to the town's flood appeal.
A Clarence House spokesperson confirmed that the pair had made the private donation, but declined to comment on the amount.
I was gobsmacked when the letter arrived but it goes to show that when you keep the awareness of an issue in the media things can, and do, happen. Thank you William and Catherine, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have donated £5,000 to help flood victims in North Wales.
Andrew Rutherford, the mayor of Rhyl, revealed on Facebook that the royal couple had made the donation to the town's flood appeal.
A Clarence House spokesman confirmed that the pair had made a private donation but declined to comment on the amount.
The Royal couple lived on the island of Anglesey when they were first married, and the nearby seaside town of Rhyl was severely affected by storms in December.
A project has been launched to encourage young people to consider opening a high street business to help revitalise "flagging" town centres.
One town where the charity the Carnegie UK Trust is targeting 16 to 30-year-olds by offering to help with ideas for opening new shops is Rhyl.
The charity hopes that thousands of youngsters will apply to be part of its TestTown initiative, which will be held this summer.Regional winners will receive £500 start-up funding, while the national winner will get £10,000 to invest in a business.
Jim Metcalfe of the Carnegie UK Trust said, "TestTown will demonstrate that imaginative, youthful thinking can help our flagging high streets. It will show young people that they can realise their potential and create great new businesses.
"There is chronic youth unemployment in the UK and the sight of vacant shops in our town centres is something this initiative aims to change."
Other towns and cities involved are Manchester, Middlesbrough, Kirkinilloch, Bury St Edmunds, Perth and Coleraine.
