A seal rescued by the RSPCA after fishing netting got caught around her neck, was successfully released back into the sea on Friday after treatment at East Winch Wildlife Centre.

The female adult grey seal, named Queen Size by staff, was found on a beach in Bacton in October in an extremely emaciated, dehydrated and weak state. The netting had dug so deeply into her flesh that two complete rings had been forged around her neck.

Centre manager Alison Charles said: “We had to borrow a horse box to transport her. It was a bit tricky at times but all went well in the end and it was so lovely to see her swimming away in the sea again – where she belongs.”
