A photograph of a seal on the Isle of Man has alarmed residents of the need to protect wildlife.

Manx Wildlife Trust were called out on Friday after beach combing charity Beach Buddies reported a seal with rope around its neck was at The Sound.

The Trust inspected the area where the seal was lying but could not approach it.

They have since returned but have not seen the seal again.
