Seal joins in with River Witham paddleboard lesson

A seal was filmed hitching a ride on a paddleboard on the River Witham in Lincolnshire.

The seal, known as Dandy, swam up to the group before climbing aboard and having a cheeky nibble at the occupant's toes.

Instructor Phil May, from Yellowbelly SUP School, caught the moment on camera and said he had never seen a seal in the river before.
