REMARKABLE pictures show a seal pup up close and personal with a walker in Shoebury.

Cute pictures reveal just how friendly a seal pup can be, with photos from a walker in Gunners Park, Shoebury proving just that.

The seal pup came up to the sea wall before dissappearing back under the surface again, but giving a member of the Echo Camera Club enough time to snap several pictures.

Seals a rare sight in Southend, usually giving passers by just a glimpse of a view into their World.

Kelvin Read, who snapped the seal on Sunday, said: "During my morning exercise walk, right by the sea wall at Gunners Park, Shoeburyness this little Seal came up and then disappeared again just as quickly."
