A seal discovered in a field on Merseyside has been diagnosed with pneumonia but is on the road to recovery.

The adult grey seal, who has been named Dumbledore, was found stranded in a field in Newton-le-Willows, at least 20 miles from the sea, on 22 December.

He was taken to the RSPCA’s specialist seal facility in East Winch, Norfolk, the following day, where he was examined by a vet and underwent tests.
