VIDEO: Dolphin pays visit to Torquay harbour
A DOLPHIN has been spotted paying repeat visits to Torquay harbour.
Crowds gathered at the weekend to watch the creature, which had a chunk missing from its dorsal fin but otherwise seemed well.
Assistant harbour master Nick Burns said it was first seen in Torquay last Thursday morning.
He said: "The barge with the crane for the works on the banjo had to be towed from Dartmouth.

"The dolphin was spotted in Dartmouth by the crew. It was seen playing between the tug and the tow and it followed them all the way to Torquay.
"When the barge came into Torquay harbour, the dolphin hung around for at least an hour, swimming in circles, before it swam away."
Mr Burns said although dolphins were regularly seen just outside the harbour, he had only seen a dolphin in the harbour two or three times in the last 10 years.
He said: "It's good to see dolphins. It shows what thriving marine life we have got here."
Seals and even a basking shark have also been seen in Torquay harbour in the past.
