Marine life rescue teams are battling to keep a whale alive after it was found stranded on a beach in Falmouth.
Initial reports suggested it was a dolphin but marine mammal medics have identified it as a young pilot whale.
Volunteers formed a human chain to pass buckets of water along Castle beach to pour over the animal to keep it cool. The whale has also been covered in wet towels and surrounded by a screen.
Experts from British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) are monitoring the animal's breathing while they wait for a vet to say whether it is healthy enough to be refloated.
However they fear the worst because the whale's body condition is said to be "poor".

"We've got about 15 volunteer marine mammal medics on scene with specialist equipment.
They are monitoring its breathing, keeping it damp and trying to minimize the stress of the animal.
We are in consultation with a vet at the moment and it's up to the vet to say what the condition is and to decide whether we can attempt to refloat it.
At the moment I'm not sure if that's going to be possible."
