Rescued seal pups released back into wild

Two little seal pups found injured a few months ago have been nursed back to health and released back into the wild off the North Antrim coast.

Hans and Albert needed feeding up to help give them the thick layer of blubber they need to survive the winter in the chilly Atlantic.

The orphans were looked after by staff at the Exploris sanctuary in Portaferry, Co Down.

But, as Gareth Wilkinson reports, they were taken to Ballintoy to be released.
