A SEASIDE town has announced it is to hold a two-week festival in honour of its local puffins.

Amble, in Northumberland, has 36,000 puffins living locally and in the last two weeks of May, thousands of pufflings will be newly-hatched.

The town will run boat trips close to Coquet Island a mile out to sea, which is run by the RSPB as a haven for seabirds.
