Basking sharks arrive in Cornwall earlier than expected

The first basking sharks of 2015 have been spotted arriving near Falmouth.

They turn up near Cornwall's southern coastline every year but are not normally seen until the middle of May.

However our increasingly warmer waters are luring them earlier and it is thought the recent warm weather may have prompted the arrival of these two sharks.

The sharks were filmed on Wednesday at Cadgwith and Coverack off the Lizard peninsula on the southern tip of Cornwall.
