Watch: Entire UK village swamped by sea foam
- Filed under:
The recent fierce storms and severe winds are taking their toll all over the UK - and they have left one old fishing villlage in Aberdeen completely engulfed in sea foam.
Houses and vehicles in the village of Footdee (known as Fittie), were covered in the stuff.
Speaking on STV News, resident Joyce Cairns said: "I have stayed in the village for 33 years and I have seen wild storms - but I have never anything as bad as this.
"I woke up at 7am and I couldn't believe it when I looked out of the window... At first I thought it was just the sea coming over but the foam gradually came closer and closer to the house every 15 minutes."
It may look nasty, but it's harmless - sea foam is a concoction of sand and seawater, which becomes mixed together when the sea is particularly rough. Many coastal regions in the north east coast have become covered in the stuff in the past few days as this picture, taken at Marsden Beach in South Shields, shows.
Storms are continuing to batter Scotland, with rain and winds of up to 101mph. Roads, ferries, bridges and trains are all being affected by the weather.
