The group were spotted by Stuart Baines, of Scarborough Porpoise on Facebook, who captured this brilliant footage of them swimming just off the coast of Scarborough.

The pod were spotted in North and South Bays before heading off North up the coast.

The Scarborough Porpoise page has drawn a following of 20,000 people online and Stuart regularly shares footage and photos of marine mammals along the coastline such as dolphins, porpoises and whales.
