Stranded seals injured in the storms could be released back into Cornwall's seas.

The National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek ended up looking after almost fifty pups after ten metre waves slammed into the Duchy.

Animal care supervisor Tamara Cooper tells Pirate FM the hospital has been full since the bad weather hit: "They're coming in with some storm damage, lots of cuts and abrasions and we've had a few broken jaws as well where they've been dashed against the rocks. Some of them have just not learnt to feed themselves because the seas have been so rough that they've not been able to get out there and learn to feed.

"We've now got plenty of pups here and we've got plenty that are now ready to go so we're keeping an eye on the weather every day to try and find a clear spell and we're hoping that this week we've possibly got a clear spell where we can get them back to the wild."
