Sneaky Seal Attempts to Remove English Diver's Hood

Ben Burville had his hands full as he dived in the waters off the English coast as a mischievous grey seal attempted to remove his hood.

Burville, a scuba diver who works as a doctor in the coastal town of Amble, Northumberland, by day, has built up a rapport with seals in the area after nearly 20 years diving among them.
