9 August 2013 Last updated at 15:33 BST

A grey seal rescued after spending two days tangled in fishing nets has returned to the sea.

Volunteers from Caister Lifeboat and the Seal and Bird Rescue Trust rescued the two-year-old, which was stranded on Scroby Sands, near Great Yarmouth.

The commercial line had cut into the blubber around its neck.

It was treated with anaesthetic spray before heading off into the water, where it is expected to make a full recovery.
