Hurt seals flood wildlife centre after tidal surge

A wildlife centre is "struggling" to treat more than 100 seal pups injured and separated from their mothers in last week's tidal surge in Norfolk.

About 40 were brought in to the East Winch centre, near King's Lynn, on Friday, but the number rose sharply over the weekend, the charity said.

The RSPCA's Katya Mira said staff had been "working around the clock" to treat the pups.

"It couldn't have happened at a worse time," she said.

Ms Mira said the surge had happened right at the height of the "pupping season".
