Laura and Luke Woodward were walking their dogs on Dawlish beach when they first saw a number of jellyfish washed up. Then they spotted the baby shark struggling in the shallows and went to help it back out to sea.
There has been some discussion about what type of shark it is after Laura posted her picture on the Eyes of Dawlish Facebook discussion group. Some thought it was a black dog fish.
Luckily, there was not more than four of them on the beach or teignmouth council would have sent out a warden to fine the owner.....
Apologies forr the typo : should have been "teignbridge" council.
