Fishermen spot two killer whales in the Irish Sea

Rare footage of two killer whales swimming in the Irish Sea has been captured by fishermen.

The two animals - which famously featured in 1993 blockbuster Free Willy - were filmed by a crew on board a fishing vessel on Saturday.

The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group has said it is trying to establish whether the animals are those known to be part of the Scottish West Coast Community group of killer whales.

It is the second confirmed sighting of a killer whales since the end of October, when a pair were seen off the coast of Skerries travelling north.
