Norfolk seals 'fared better than feared' in storm surge

Seals thought to have been lost on the north Norfolk coast due to last week's storm fared better than feared, experts say.

Hundreds of seal pups, which cannot swim or survive without their mother's milk, were feared lost along the coast.

But the National Trust and Friends of Horsey Seals say assessments of the coastline show things are "better than first thought".

Many seals managed to get to higher ground, the National Trust said.

It said the "vast majority" of more than 1,000 seals and pups at Blakeney Point "survived the extreme tidal surge".
