Storm Arwen has caused havoc along the Norfolk Coastline this week, leaving a number of seal cubs stranded without their mothers for protection.

Wildlife organisations have been working hard to collect the animals and bring them to shelters where they can be cared for.

Evangelos Achilleos is the Manager of the RSCPA’s East Winch Wildlife Centre which specialises in seal rehabilitation.

I asked him: how many pups have been rescued since the storm, and how many more do they expect to have to take in?
