Seal Pups Cause Chaos - By Being Too Cute

Seals have long been known to arrive at Horsey beach in Norfolk to give birth to their young. But this year, a record number of pups have been born - 600 of the little fellows. And their presence has attracted an enormous number of curious animal lovers, with some 30,000 people showing up to have a look at them. This has caused traffic chaos.

Volunteers from the Friends of Horsey Seals are tying to keep visitors from disturbing the little pups, while the Norfolk Police are urging motorists to stay away.
