Rescued seal pup Spud released into the wild

Help

A seal pup that was found the yard of a machinery hire company in Strabane, County Tyrone, has been released back into the wild.

Spud was taken in by a seal sanctuary after his surprise appearance in January, but has made such good progress that keepers decided he was strong enough to go free.
