Footage shows enormous 'whirlpool' off the coast of Scotland - caused by waste water Paul Young, 46, captured the footage using his drone yesterday evening (Sun) in Lendalfoot, South Ayrshire. The accountant, from Girvan, South Ayrshire, was stumped by the strange sight which has been identified as waste water flowing into the sea. Paul said: "I had assumed it was a riptide and it looked a bit like a whirlpool. "I posted it on social media to see if anyone knew. "I've had loads of folk saying things from herring spawning to effluent, burst pipes, to methane leaks to possible explosives. "There are loads of old bombs in there. "I don't think it's that because I watched for about an hour and if it had been a bomb it would have been one huge, quick explosion.
