Seal spotted in Worcestershire

A grey seal has been spotted in flood water in Worcestershire in what experts described as a rare journey so far upstream.

It is believed that the same female grey was also seen in Bewdley and Stourport-on-Severn.

Luke Hemming said it was the first time he had seen a seal at the marina in the 10 years he had been going there.

He said it had been seen several times over the day, sometimes with a fish in its mouth.

The Marine Conservation Society said the seal may have been following food.
