A dolphin swam alongside a  boat for half an hour on a glorious evening while sailing with Weymouth Sailing Club.

Jenny Clark, who took he photographs from on board Chloe II, said: "It kept us entertained when there wasn't much wind to sail with. There was also a seal in the bay too."

It is believed it may be Danny the Dolphin, who has returned to Weymouth harbour following a three-month stint near Poole.

Since last year, numerous videos have been appearing online of Danny the bottlenose - he even has his own Facebook page.

Although some campaigners are worried for his safety from people hounding him on this occasion he approached the boat and swan alongside and was in no danger.
