'Lost' grey seal rescued from field in St Helens

A seal found in a field in Merseyside has been taken to a wildlife hospital "exhausted" after being rescued.

The "distressed" sea mammal was found near Newton Brook in Newton-le-Willows at about 09:45 GMT, police said.

Police, animal rescue officers and a farmer herded it with brooms and metal fences into a RSPCA trailer.

The grey seal, found about 17 miles (27km) from the nearest coastline, is thought to have travelled up the River Mersey, before getting "lost".
