A seagull was dyed bright orange after falling into a pot of curry.

The seagull, who has since been nicknamed Gullfrazie - which is a medley of the species and the a spicy dish from the Indian cuisine called jalfrezi - since the incident, was trying to pinch some meat from a food factory in Wales when he took a tumble into a vat of chicken tikka masala.

Speaking to Wales Online, veterinary nurse Lucy Kells said: "He was bright orange. We have had wildlife covered in cooking fat and glue, but we've never had one covered in curry before."

Gullfrazie hadn't been in the sauce long enough and was swiftly rescued from the Indian dish and has returned to its pure white colour.

Meanwhile, the seaside bird will remain at the Vale Wildlife Hospital until his feathers have recovered their natural oils.
