Sleepy seal takes a break in Ramsey

Actual seal may vary from one pictured above

Leave him alone, warn police

Police in the north of the Island have warned dog walkers of an unexpected guest by the seaside.

A seal - who's said to be 'very tired' - is currently enjoying a rest on North Beach, Ramsey, near to the steps of the Grand Island Hotel.

Errant dogs can prove a problem for the marine animals, so they should be kept on a lead if nearby.

Pedestrians should also avoid disturbing it.

The ManxSPCA and Manx Wildlife Trust are aware - the sleepy seal's expected to 'make its own way home' after regaining its strength.
