A seal has been rescued after being stuck "in distress" in the river reportedly in Bexley.

The Met Police helicopter tweeted about their search and even shared a picture of the bemused-looking animal.

It is not yet known where exactly the seal was spotted.

The force tweeted from its ‏@MPSinthesky account earlier this morning (May 20): "Search for seal seen in distress and stuck in mud @MPSBexley.

"That's in distress not in a dress.

"I99 assists due to the hazard that water and mud present to ground units.

"One detained by I99."
