Staff at inland nature reserve 'relaxed' about seal's arrival

Staff at an RSPB nature reserve in Cambridgeshire have said they are "relaxed" about the arrival of a seal which is believed to have swam 50 miles inland through floodwater.

The seal has taken up residence in a lake at Fen Drayton Lakes Reserve in Swavesey where it was filmed trying to clear a flood defence earlier.

It is perfectly happy in the lake with plenty of food to sustain it.

It is not a threat to any other wildlife and hopefully it will find its way out the same way it came in.
