The spectacular marine wildlife off Falmouth was on show last week when the first Minke whale of the year was spotted swimming off the coast.

AK Wildlife Cruises said: "During a fabulous and very exciting trip out Thursday, April 10, we came across a Minke whale traveling fast as it was feeding on shoals of fish. Also we sighted puffins, porpoise, seals and many birds.
