MEET Sammy - the little fella cheerfully putting a smile on everyone's face.

The seal has reappeared in the past week playing in Millwall Inner Dock, where he's taken a particular shine to a piece of piping and was snapped by Advertiser photographer Joe Lord. The seal, who's made plenty of appearances over the years in the East End's waters, has kept workers and residents captivated with his playful antics.

And his continued presence is also pleasing the people responsible for keeping dock waters in good health.

"It shows that the water is clean and supports a variety of fish," said a spokeswoman for British Waterways.
