Beach-goers and dog walkers are being warned to take care after a large jellyfish washed up on Sandown beach.

Siobhan Caws was walking along the beach with her two children on Thursday evening (11) when they spotted the jellyfish on the sand.

Jellyfish are common, but some can cause serious harm to humans and animals if they are stung.
