Three seal pups have been rescued by the Sea Life Sanctuary in Hunstanton within just a few hours.

Members of the rescue team were already out picking up two abandoned pups  when they received a third call from a fishing boat on its way into King's Lynn harbour.

The crew of the Silver Star were concerned after they spotted the female pup on a sand bar with no adult in sight.

After some TLC by staff the new arrivals are now doing well. There's now around 10 pups being cared for at the centre. It's hoped that by Autumn they will be ready to be released back into the wild.

The theme for names this year is Super Heroes so the pups have been named Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, Daredevil, Super Ted, Dangermouse and Zelda, as well as the three new rescues Mystique, Spiderman and Flash Gordon.

Here are some of the latest visitors to the centre:
