Seal rescued after swimming from Scotland to pub near Bristol

An seal pup travelled from Scotland to the front door of a pub near Bristol.

The lone pup - called Neoprene by the pub landlord and renamed Nacho by the RSPCA - turned up at The Old Lock and Weir in Hanham on Sunday.

The seal was taken to RSCPA West Hatch in Taunton, Somerset, for some rest and recuperation.
