This was the unusual sight that Sussex Express reporter Nikki Jeffery discovered on her way to work this morning (Friday January 3).

A seal was basking in the rain on a pontoon on the River Ouse near the Cliffe Industrial Estate on the edge of Lewes.

There was just time to capture this photo before the camera shy creature disappeared into the water.
