Seal bite man may lose arm


A MARINE wildlife volunteer may have to have his arm amputated after being bitten by a seal.

The man, known only as Richard, was left with a deep 3in-wide wound after stepping in to help the pup who had been in a fight with another seal.

The incident took place on Caister beach in Norfolk where many seals have an infection which causes rotting in the mouth.

He was taken to A&E and given strong antibiotic­s.
