A MAN who was bitten by a seal was rescued with the help of Portsmouth-based ship HMS Clyde.

The offshore patrol vessel, which is currently off the Falkland Islands, was called into action with a RAF helicopter after the British man was bitten in South Georgia.

He was visiting the island with a Russian cruise ship and needed urgent medical attention on his arm.

He was airlifted to a hospital in Port Stanley – the capital of the Falklands.
