This incredible video shows the moment rescued seals were entertained by a FLAUTIST - after carers realised the animals are calmed by classical music.

Staff at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek first realised the creatures enjoyed the fliute when a student, Mati Skerrett, performed a research project.

Mati discovered that classical music soothed the nerves of the rescued seals, most of which are wild and can get anxious around people or in enclosures.
