A baby seal has been saved from drowning by the skippers of a tourist boat.

William McPhee and Andrew Weightman fished the motionless two-day-old female pup from the North Sea near the Farne Islands, off Northumberland.

She “would certainly have drowned” if not for their “quick thinking and efforts”, a Tynemouth Seal Rescue Unit spokesman said.

Mr McPhee said she “did look very rough when we picked her up”.

“We got her wrapped up in a towel and she started breathing a bit better.”

Seal pups are dependent on their mothers for at least the first four weeks of their lives.

The rescued pup is being cared for by British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) volunteers and Blue Reef Aquarium staff in Tynemouth.
