Horsey seal injured by flying ring 'making recovery'

A seal captured by volunteers on a beach is recovering at a specialist centre after getting a flying ring trapped around its neck.

The animal was first spotted trapped in the ring on Horsey beach in Norfolk six months ago, but previous attempts to capture it and remove the frisbee-like ring failed.

BBC News visited the seal at the RSPCA hospital in East Winch, where it was taken by the Friends of Horsey Seals.
