Seal rescued from nuclear power station

The RSPCA had to be called after a seal swam into the Wylfa power station on Anglesey.

It happened last week when the mammal was dragged along by the strong currents created by the power station. The hapless seal found himself in a large watery chamber with no means of escape.

RSPCA animal collection officer Mark Harries said: "This kind of rescue happens from time to time and we're grateful for the vigilance of power station staff. Due to the size and nature of the building, this kind of rescue is always a challenge".

The seal was later reintroduced to the sea at nearby Cemlyn Bay.
