Sutton Bridge sees 'special moment' of grey seals released back into the wild after recovering from severe necklace wounds

Two seals who suffered horrific necklace wounds have been released at a site in Sutton Bridge.

RSPCA staff from the East Winch Wildife Centre have been caring for five grey seals, including two called Gypsy and Icelandic Pony, which have been released back into the wild.

Gypsy was exhausted with a 1inch wound around her neck, caused by a discarded rope type net, and weighing just 40kg when she was rescued in July at Somerton by volunteers from the Friends of Horsey Seals.
