A seal pup conceived during a “holiday romance” has sparked a “who’s the father?” mystery.

Common seal Tyne was staying in Scarborough last July while her usual home at Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary in Norfolk was being rebuilt following tidal surge flood damage in 2013.

No one realised she was pregnant until she gave birth to a healthy pup last Friday, the Hunstanton sanctuary said.

Staff believe one of five Scarborough seals impregnated her during her stay.
