A trawlerman who documented a week at sea with a video camera he got as a birthday gift said he is astonished by the public’s reaction to the footage.
John Buchan, skipper of the Ocean Endeavour, shot the video to experiment with his new camera.
When he returned to shore he posted the video online and was shocked to see it go viral with hundreds of supportive comments. “I really didn’t expect it to travel as far as it has,” Mr Buchan said. “I was just having a play about with the GoPro I got for my birthday.”
Since he uploaded the video to Facebook last week, more than 40,000 have watched it.
