Came into work this morning to find that we have managed to pull a seal into our sea water intake at Dungeness B power station. This has happened previously and made the national news. The British Divers Marine Life Rescue are on site co ordinating a rescue.
You heard it on YD first.
Lets hope it's recovered and put back into the sea without suffering any harm.

I will let you know what happens when i get back to work tomorrow. Mind you there pesky little things see last years video taken off pembrokeshire Diving with seals, they wouldnt leave us alone. :) The third eye might come in handy though, do you think we should name it, we have Dave the dolphine off Folkestone. Any suggestions for a three eyed seal !!!!.

The Seal Lives

Just a quick update. The seal was successfully rescued at approx 10pm yesterday evening. It was transported to Dover where there is an existing colony of grey seals and released.

A well done to all those involved.
