Baby Seal Found Lolling In Doorway Of Talk Of The Town Nightclub In Herne Bay (PICTURE)

A seal pup has been photographed lolling outside the doors of a nightclub.

The marine mammal was spotted balancing on his belly outside the Talk of the Town nightclub in Herne Bay on Tuesday morning.

Emma Gatfield told Kent Online: “It just looked really confused and was lying there quietly. It didn’t look distressed. I just don’t understand how he got there.

“It is a baby but it is quite chunky for a baby seal.”

The seal pup will have crossed a busy road and travelled around 50 yards from the beach to reach the club.

The little fella was checked over by vets and released back into the sea.

Jon Brooks of British Divers Marine Life Rescue told the BBC the incident was "very strange" but added: "They quite often come out and sit on the beaches, particularly on rough days."
