Police are appealing for information or witnesses after two trials bikers were seen riding over a seal pup in Sea Palling.

The motorcyclists on trials bikes were reported to the police after they were seen at the beach in Sea Palling on Beach Road during the late morning late morning on Friday (3 December 2021).

PC Thomas Walsh said: “It’s not clear whether the seal pup was alive at the time the bikes ran over the pup, but obviously this is a disturbing incident. We have a duty of care to protect the wildlife on our coasts and we are keen for people to come forward to give us more information. We always urge people to act responsibly and ensure the seal population is not disturbed and we will act against those who wilfully harm our wildlife.”
