A seal has been spotted lying on a dumped mattress in the sea and surrounded by other rubbish along Dublin's coast.
The video was shared by environmental group flossie and the beach cleaners who say the area in Dun Laoghaire had only been cleared of litter the week before.
The group says it posted the shocking video in a bid to get people to take action.
We have been sent this clip…You sometimes wonder what kind of shocking video will work to make people take action! We cleaned these rocks by boat and land just over a week ago…we’re going back tomorrow at 2pm if anyone wants to help! 🦭 @GraceOSllvn @IrelandSailing pic.twitter.com/wX6hmH9kRd
