Scroby Sands sandbanks provide safe seal haven

Scroby Sands, a sandbank out to sea off the Norfolk coast, is relatively undisturbed and provides a safe haven for hundreds of grey seals.

Last week the Caister lifeboat was on a sea trial in the area.

BBC reporter Andrew Turner, who is also a crew member, joined them on board.

While the engineer was at work, Andrew took the opportunity to get "up close" with some of the seals who inhabit the sandbanks - which he describes as "very fragrant".
