A number of birds have been found dead on Dorset's coast as the rescue operation continues.
The sea birds are covered in a mysterious substance. More than a hundred have been rescued and taken to the RSPCA centre in West Hatch where margarine and washing up liquid are being used to clean them.
RSPCA deputy chief inspector John Pollock says: "The numbers of the birds coming in have been growing and sadly there were quite a few dead birds this morning. We are still down at the beach, though, collecting and trying to save as many of them as we can."
