This unusual friendship is seal-ed with a kiss - as a diver poses for snaps with his new furry friend.

 Ben Burville, a GP from Northumberland, has struck up an incredible relationship with a colony of inquisitive seals.

Members of the pod can be seen holding hands, kissing and playing together.

He is now so well recognised by them that they instantly swim up to him - and Ben admits to spending every spare moment in the water with his news friends.

Mr Burville said: 'Seals are a lot brighter than people think. They are social animals and they are incredibly inquisitive.

'Seals can grasp with their flippers, which are like a human hand.
