When a pod of 70 bottle-nosed dolphins started playing in the sea around a fishing boat, David Lambert grabbed his phone and started filming.

Mr Lambert, of Upper Lewes Road, was fishing 12 miles off the Brighton coast when the dolphins appear.

"I have seen dolphins four times off Brighton, and twice this year.

"These were the biggest dolphins I've seen off Brighton."

The pod played around, leaping out of the water near the boat which was out at sea on Wednesday, November 23.
