A common seal pup has been rescued from Plymouth Harbour after getting stranded on rocks there.
A team from the National Marine Aquarium - conveniently located right next to where the seal got stranded - saw the seal in trouble on Saturday.
The pup was taken to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek with injuries to its tail, back flippers and lower jaw.
The teams from the aquarium and Cornish Seal Sanctuary said they were most concerned the seal could be harassed and forced into the water because it was found so close to the city.
After an assessment at the Seal Sanctuary it became clear the pup was a female and - other than her injuries - was in relatively good health despite being a little slim.
She was given a liquid feed, which included extra electrolytes, to remedy any signs of dehydration.
