A member of the public has recorded footage of an otter that appears to be limping along the banks of the River Wensum.

Amy Barker, 31, was standing by The Ribs of Beef pub in Norwich with another couple when she noticed the limping otter on the jetty.

She also said there was another otter further up the river but she did not manage to take any footage.

Once Amy suspected the otter was injured, she messaged the Norfolk Wildlife Trust and passed on the video she had taken.

'I tried to find it myself but I was on the other side of the river and by the time I got round there it has disappeared.'
