Wally the walrus blocks lifeboat crew on emergency rescue call-out

WALLY the walrus blocked a lifeboat crew on a rescue call-out.

The Arctic beast was resting on their slipway after feeding for days and at first refused to budge his 95st bulk.

One volunteer, who had raced to the station, tried to shift him with a broom at Tenby in Pembrokeshire.

But tourist Martyn Sidwell, of Middlesbrough, said: “The walrus looked at him as if to say, ‘You’re having a laugh’.”

The crewman returned with an air-horn. Martyn said: “Wally thought, ‘I’ve had enough’, and went into the sea.”

The three-year-old walrus has come from his Arctic home to the Welsh coast via Ireland.
