Dozens of small sharks have been spotted washed up on a Denbighshire beach.

They have been identified as starry smooth-hounds, or gummy sharks - due to their lack of sharp teeth.

Passers-by spotted 25 to 30 of the sharks on the Prestatyn beach on Tuesday before posting images to social media.

Marine expert Gem Simmons said she had tried to take samples, but the sharks had "fallen prey to herring gulls".

"To find one or two is normal, but so many is worrying," she added, but said it wasn't possible to reach a conclusion yet as to why the sharks washed up.
