Strange geyser-like eruptions at Worcester's flooded race course have led some people to speculate that the Loch Ness monster has taken up residence.
Passers-by stopped to watch the strange phenomenon exploding from various locations, asking 'is it a whale or is it a drain?'
One woman said: “I think it’s the Loch Ness Monster. They’ve been looking for it for years and it turns up here on Pitchcroft!”
However, others think it was something far more mundane including a drainage problem on the racecourse.
Gulls were circling the spot, leading some to speculate that it was a porpoise or a seal.
