Lost seal pup found in field miles away from sea
A lost seal has been rescued after it turned up in a farmer’s field – more than 30 miles (48 km) from the sea.
The puzzled pinniped was spotted in the Lancashire village of Walton-le-Dale, near Preston, after apparently swimming upstream along the River Darwen.
Veterinary nurse Rebecca Adair said she was walking her dog on Sunday when she saw her neighbour “frantically waving” after finding the mammal.
