Keith the River Severn seal to visit Gloucester?

Despite being 50 miles from home, the female seal which has affectionately been given a man's name by residents, is most certainly not a fish out of water in the River Severn.
She has been spotted on numerous occasions, most recently in Worcester, feeding on the fish there and the Angling Trust even tried to obtain a licence to shoot her but withdrew the application.
It is now thought that she could be about to move on into the watercourses of Gloucester.

Richard Mander, from Gloucester Angling Club, said: "We have got extremely well stocked rivers here, one seal wouldn't cause any problems at all.
"There are much bigger issues to worry about. We don't fear the arrival of Keith."
